Vancouver Sleep Clinic’s 2017 debut album Revival was an intensive emotional experience. Brisbane musician Tim Bettinson pummeled our hearts with his satin smooth vocals and his dulcet melting ambient pop on the record. I was lucky enough to catch him on tour in a very intimate space after the release of Revival; it was an unforgettable experience. In the following months, VSC has stayed reticent with his work, so my breath immediately caught in my throat and my heart fluttered near out of my chest when I came across Closure, Tim’s brand new single featuring Drew Love of alt hip hop/R&B visionaries THEY. I’d never have guessed the two projects could go so well together, but Closure is the perfect juncture between Drew Love’s waxy hip hop vocals and Vancouver Sleep Clinic’s glacial synths, glassy crooning, and cavernous sonic aesthetic. The remarkable song is an atmospheric brooding, glossy swiveling indie electro tour de force, and it marks a new chapter of music to come from Vancouver Sleep Clinic.
