Bucolic gets lost in the hazy dreamscape of “Earth Tones”
Seth Carpenter’s one-person indie-psych project Bucolic is readying the release of a new LP called Oneirogens on Saturday, May 25th. After first teasing the project back in March with the opener, “Light Traces,” Carpenter recently gave us another pre-release snippet in the form of “Earth Tones,” a song that moves through languid, velvety textures in the spirit of early Beach House. The lyrics aren’t entirely discernible through the cloudy reverb, but it seems like Carpenter is narrating the wake of a breakup, and the solitude that occurs in that place: “I don’t feel it, I’m alone.”
Take a listen via the YouTube visualizer below, and see Bucolic on his Manic Summer tour, which swings through Philadelphia on July 27th at Center City’s Raven Lounge. More information on the show here; pre-order Oneirogens here.
