Review Summary: A Warm Sunrise
Sun Glitters is the alias of musician and producer Victor Ferreira, a down-tempo/chill-wave electronic artist based out of Luxemburg. Everything Could Be Fine is Ferreria’s first release, and it’s a swirling melting pot of many different influences and textures. Sun Glitters displays a unique and rich sound that’s both genre defying and packed with emotion. Trip hop and 2-step inspired beats are complemented wonderfully with eerie and beautiful vocal samples, rumbling bass and layered ambiance. Everything Could Be Fine is an excellent mix of the hazy ambiance found in artists like Tycho, the vocal samples of Swarms and the trippy vibes of Boards of Canada. Hauntingly nostalgic female vocals peep in and out of the drunken beats in songs like Too Much to Lose and A Dragonfly In The City while echoey synths and fat bass lines build structure to the music.
Sun Glitters has created a truly soothing sound with this release, and it’s a perfect soundtrack to your smoky summer afternoon. It’s an album that is effective in its simplicity, and eases through eight tracks of chilled-out electronic nirvana. It’s hard to not feel a sense of peace and well-being rush over you when listening to this album, due to the uplifting and relaxing nature of the music. The album is beautiful and comforting, like a sunrise that warms your body after a cool summer night. My only minor disappointments in this album is that it begins to lose its focus towards the end due to tracks Love Me and Everything Could Be Fine lacking a sense of cohesiveness. Also, I would have liked to album to have been a bit longer with more variety between the tracks. Regardless of these minor gripes, Sun Glitters is definitely a worthwhile addition for anyone who enjoys relaxing electronic music or chill-wave music. Fans of Boards of Canada, Tycho, Swarms and Lone will surely enjoy what Sun Glitters has created here.
