New Stuck In Summer: “Too Late”

The Stuck In Summer project has been playing around with this style – chopped up vocals rippling over one another, wrapped up in hazy-dazy synth. It can sometimes be a bit too suffocating…dreams shouldn’t always sound so busy…yet “Too Late” offers a piece of how good the approach can be. Critically, this song unfolds at a slower pace than a couple of songs Stuck In Summer has posted over the last few weeks…also not helping dreams is hyperactivity. “Too Late” is more careful, letting the dizzying electronics and an especially pretty vocal snippet build up carefully, so that when they do go into overdrive it feels earned. The pace also allows the sweet feeling conjured up by Stuck In Summer drip over the listener more effectively – every syllable and faux-string hit delivers a wallop. Listen below.
