Silhouettes crackle and fade into the background as “If Yer Dreamin'” spins up a glorious sonic whirlwind. Electronics dance through glitching fieldscapes, chased by sharp, stochastic rhythms and a minefield of memories. Miller cuts his voice into glass pieces before reassembling them into a melodic mosaic where urgency blends into chaos. Movement comes in multiple timbres with arpeggios creating an effervescent flow from buoyant chord progressions, and countless vocal layers dispersing and intersecting. It’s overwhelming in moments, but Miller continually pulls us back to the song’s center.
Colin Miller’s Haw Creek will be released by Ruination on September 29. Stream below and pre-order HERE.
