Whatever you’re doing, just stop. Everything can wait for a minute. At least that’s how I feel when I listen to ambient jams like Two Castle‘s “Liquor”. Though I don’t love the first few seconds of percussive beats, when the glowing synth kicks in and the vocals layer on top shortly after, damn is it just ambient electronic bliss. The song is without a definite climax; instead, it’s reminiscent of that happy liquor daze we all find ourselves in from time to time.
Born out of a curiosity to marry electronic pop with lo-fi bedroom recordings, Two Castles released an EP back in April 2015 to explore this relationship. After feeling the project out, Eric Charles Christenson refined it, released “Liquor”, and has two additional singles on the horizon.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s ambient bedroom tracks, and “Liquor” hits the nail on the head. Give it a spin, close your eyes, and let Two Castles take you to the country.
