Low’s description on its soundcloud stream says “this song is really special”. To be fair, special is an understatement. After all, the haunting lullaby, which comes from a Los Angeles based chanteuse who goes by the simple yet striking name TRACE, is a slowly unraveling exposition about bittersweet heartbreak. This thing called love twists us in unruly ways. “I prefer better, though I prefer you”. Most of us have been there before, and most of us were “sweeter” before the torment of that situation left us with scars. The ambient pop and ethereal electronica on Low are gut wrenching and heart rending, yet deeply, soothingly consoling. TRACE is the latest addition to Next Wave’s growing roster of versatile magnificence.
