Treasure :: "Canada"

It's not that "chill-wave" and "glo-fi" aren't useful terms - they've just been overused to the point of noxious ubiquity. This puts us in an odd spot when handling Treasure, a solo synth project from London. It has the same warm sheen and sea-sick-cruiser tempo, like twirling in sunset circles while traveling, swallowing Dramamine. "Canada" is backed with a packaged clap-track and sailing guitar arpeggios, clouding a chorus that outlines either complex metaphor or simple geographic truth, "I'm in Canada." The pulsing background vocals provide an aesthetic of their own, gleaming, stuffed with color and ready to just lie down for a minute until this thing clears.
