TRACE- Low

The indie-music blogosphere has been going batshit-crazy about the fact that this girl is the daughter of the "Vietnamese Tina Turner"............ SMH. Literally, I don't even know what that means.  And when I try google searching "Vietnamese Tina Turner" the only music-related finding that pops up is a video of Beyonce singing a Tina Turner tribute (cause I guess you can't go anywhere on the internet these days without Queen Bey making an appearance #thebeygencyisREAL).

Overall, though, who fucking cares where this girl came from or if she is technically the "female, Vietnamese Ronnie Turner"? All I care about now is that I have TRACE's chill-wave indie ditty in my life (and my eardrums) foreverrrrr. My favorite element of "Low" are the layered synth patterns happening here—A truly delightful swirl of jittery and ambient sounds. And the singsongy chorus is pure, auditory bliss. With it's soft-spoken and whimsical, yet at the same time commanding, vocals, the track kind of reminds me of SALES, just a little less avian-esque #weirdbuttrue.
