Participant has released a brand new track called ‘Next Year’, taken from the artist’s recent limited edition cassette Sampler.
Set against a strong depth of field, ‘Next Year’ oddly maintains Participant’s spacious sound while also feeling densely packed with instrumentation and layering.
Up-close vocals, washes of harmonic soundscapes, and soft picked acoustic guitar all come together to create a song that is constantly changing that seems to follow the self-reflective musings that run right through Participant’s lyrics.
Participant supports Peter Silberman (The Antlers) this Friday, April 21st in Dublin’s Unitarian Church.
