SPILL NEW MUSIC: VOGUE DOTS – “IF YOU STAY”
Vogue Dots came to life when Babette and Tynan joined forces in the experimental-pop-tronica department. The Canadian pair’s musical energy seems unending; as they are not only musicians and singers, but also songwriters and co-producers of their material. Being described as “siblings with differences,” their previous EP led the pair to collecting notable praise and meanwhile exploring, expanding and experimenting even more with their new single “If You Stay.”
“If You Stay,” taken from their upcoming EP, simply works due to Babette and Tynan’s emotional focus and creative commitment to the song. They’re not trying too hard or doing too much. Layered with just the right amount of ethereal production, they design a track surrounded by a retro, dreamy blend between two pros of inter-dimensional sonic productions, Beach House and Mt. Wolf.
From start to finish there isn’t a moment wasted musically or vocally. Babette’s vocal performance, comparable to Beth Orton, feels 100% genuine and effortless. It is personal; it is visceral as well as being equally relatable. The full If You Stay EP comes out May 27 on Seayou Records. Check out “If You Stay” via Soundcloud below.
