Footprintz – Utopia
Visionquest unleash the second superb release on this year’s most exciting new label. Footprintz possess the kind of musical magic that seems to be created through some unfathomable chemical reaction, their pop sensibilities perfectly balanced with a mystical sense of kudos. Sounding like Hot Chip in paradise, Hercules in a new Love Affair with a euphoric LCD Soundsystem, ‘Utopia’ is the first step in a great musical journey for this magnetic partnership.
Charming guitar led melodies strung out over blissful poetic lyrics and dreamy synths, ‘Utopia’ is the embodiment of its definition. A captivating blend of pop magic, hatched in a dream and painted in vivid colour, it creates devotion to its musical heart. It’s elusive partner in crime, ‘Golden Dreams’ is cloaked in mystery and soaked with attraction. Uttering choral cries and apocalyptic echoes, it evokes the thrilling sensations of falling in love.
Steering to the dancefloor, house music king Ewan Pearson breathes melancholic pulses through Utopia’s veins in a heart-rendering remix for the small hours a truly inspiring remix from Ewan who mastered the whole EP.
The second release on the Visionquest label, brought together by the four musketeers: Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves, illuminates their inspired direction and precise aims to unleash a fresh visionary sonic imprint upon the earth.
Footprintz are the Montreal based duo formed through the dreamy musical decadence of Adam Hunter and Clarion North, channeling hypnotic euphoria from the constellation Pegasus into kaleidoscopic sunrise floors.
