The album artwork for “Somebody Will” feels like vaporwave and neofuturism collided into a timeless display, so I’m naturally infatuated at first sight. The purple and blue hues fading into one another are enchanting while the forthcoming collision between a static relic and a dynamic piece of technology brings to mind countless possibilities. If 2001: A Space Odyssey was actually a Macintosh advertisement from the 1980s, this is what it’d look like.
The music doesn’t embody its visual compliment, but I’m perfectly okay with that as it’s a summery electronic outing that fills me with as much joy as its artwork. Gabrielle Current’s vocals are utterly enchanting while Jesser’s production lends itself to poolside extravaganzas; it’s no 2001: A Space Odyssey soundtrack in vaporwave form, but as the temperature rises by the day in Los Angeles, it’s the perfect soundtrack to life outside the cinematic.
