Honestly, we’ll never feel “aimless” when we have music like this to be our beacon of light in the dark world that surrounds us. Berlin by way of Amsterdam’s O-SHiN delivers alt and electro pop perfection on her third single, Aimless. It’s a finely constructed twilight enchanter with swirling electronics, stuttering percussion, and even samples from a forest. We saunter through that forest, following this verdant and intricate sonic path laid down by the compelling artist. Every soft plink and watery burble fills us with wonder. Aimless is lifted from O-SHiN’s debut EP, set for release this May.

I don’t know if this new artist’s chosen pseudonym is a nod to the word “ocean” or whether it’s by chance O-Shin might be pronounced in a similar fashion, but the Berlin by way of Amsterdam newcomer certainly submerges us in an ocean of haunting bliss with her first song. A Revelation is a minimalist pop and shadowy future bass chimera that thoroughly bewitches. The song is like a metaphysical experience. Its surreal soundscape and clattering beats feels like James Blake paired with Bonobo, but with futuristic shimmers and dusky shudders, as well as a jazzy sophistication that even utilizes what sounds like a sitar to add even more other worldly richness to its multi-dimensional layers. Svelte Kill J meets AlunaGeorge-like vocals draw us ever deeper into A Revelations’ breathtaking soundscape. O-Shin has taken a firm hold of us with this first release, and we can’t wait to hear the debut EP that she’s reportedly working on already. You can purchase A Revelation from iTunes, here.
