BEST NEW TRACK: EMILY UNDERHILL "DREAMCATCHER"

11/20/13

In an era of overexposure, overindulgence, and oversharing, London bird Emily Underhill seems to be a bit shy. That doesn't stop her new single, "Deamcatcher," from being a best new track, it just makes it all the more refreshing.

Underhill has been making music since 2010, but she only has a few cuts to show for it. There's nothing wrong with this of course, it's just nice to see someone out there is still taking time to make sure their art arrives full-formed. Several other artists could learn from her example. 

"Dreamcatcher," as the name likely suggests, is an airy, surreal track. Underhill's vocals break through the fog of scattered percussions and electronica, although they seem to get lost in the wonderful pairing of sound and silence at various points. Mimicking an actual dream (!), the lo-fi beat seems to lack a center, yet it remains pinned down the entire track. "Dreamcatcher" is an ambient triumph. I could get lost in this atmospheric dream world all day.

Lyrics for Emily Underhill "Dreamcatcher" are below:

Stumble, i won't be your call

Each time you fall

When you need it

And I still feel it
I can't breathe here

Elusive shadows

I try but I can't let them go
You took my dreams and you set them in stone

When you told me you love me

Tumble, lights cover all

Your dark waterfalls

(Catching up)

our eyes are full of fear

Get me out of here

Elusive shadows

I try but I can't let them go
You took my dreams and you set them in stone

When you told me you love me

Thanks for stopping by Bitcandy, where we'll take your dreams and set them in stone.
