It’s hard to listen to singer-songwriter Seth Carpenter’s Bucolic project without stopping to wonder why he chose that name. With soft, shimmery instrumentals and a heavily filtered vocal, the South Jersey native creates dreamlike soundscapes that fit into the idyllic, nature-filled setting the word bucolic evokes.

Bucolic’s new single “Light Traces” is no exception, and its video heavy with hazy natural scenery only adds to the winding track’s peaceful, dreamy quality. “Light Traces” is the first single from Bucolic’s forthcoming debut record, Oneirogens, which is set to be released May 25. Listen below.
