At this time is my first time listening to of metsä, however I’m already craving extra. Born with the identify Maxwell Prendergast, a bit a lot for the music world, he selected to go along with metsä as his artist alias; it’s the Finnish translation for forest, an ode to his outdoorsy upbringing.
His love of nature is mirrored in his productions, which conjure up photographs of windchimes on a porch and a comfortable breeze blowing by way of the tall grass. Serenity and peace are the targets, and he definitely achieves them with these two new singles, “All Night” and Like To Know.”
The primary, “All Night,” was written with Lolaby again in 2017; the 2 held off on releasing it as they “knew we had created something worth holding onto after finalizing it.”
“So when RAC + Goldroom approached me two years later to release music under their new label Minerva, I had the perfect track.” – metsä
The second monitor, “Like To Know,” performs a bit extra quick and unfastened with melody. At factors, the whimsical music is completely in tune and at others begins to detune and go off the crushed path, as if affected by some exterior power. It’s arduous to say what the inspiration for this music was, nevertheless it looks as if a lesson in development.
Each singles can be found under and precede a forthcoming EP from metsä.
