The album The Planets is a sonic embodiment of Lamalo’s artistic evolution, and one of the standout moments from their body of work is the atmospheric “Uranus”.
Lamalo is a duo formed by two conservatorium graduates who are using their talents to fuse electronica, jazz, and cinematic dance music. This has led to a sound that is difficult to pigeonhole, and “Uranus” serves as a wonderful example of this sentiment. Eerie vocals are paired with synths as bright as the moonlight, and this seamlessly grabs and holds onto our attention particularly during the dramatic climax. The overall progression feels SO cinematic, and the track’s immersive allure makes us feel as if we’re ascending toward something greater than us.
