STAINWASHER – “DRYING”

When the single “Joy for Me” was released earlier this year, I was pretty smitten with the Swedish artist’s incredible reach. In a few minutes she is able to pull together aching lead synthesizers, a playful vocal melody that sounds intimate as it does 1,000 miles away and a bleary-eyed shoegaze production quality that puts everything in a hazy soft light. Her follow up single “Drying” is lunar step forward in this sound, pulling these disparate production elements into a tight orbit around a fuzzy, blurry lead and high-register, inherently haunting vocal delivery.
