Ki Oni “Stay Indoors and Swim”

First off, I know very little about Ki Oni and only found this release because Emma Palm (aka No Translation did the excellent cover), but Stay Indoors and Swim is the sound of the shimmering surface of a pristine blue swimming pool under the brightest, hottest sun imaginable. Wistful, repetitive synth melodies hover lackadaisically; the sound of summer full of promise. Ki Oni’s music balances between the sanguine and longing for a different time and place, coming together in harmonic bliss.
