“Until The End” is taken from Sanctuary Lakes‘s debut, self-titled album, out today on Cutters Records.
A new super-duo consisting of Tim Hoey from Cut Copy and Andy Szekeres from Midnight Juggernauts, Sanctuary Lakes caught our attention a few weeks ago with their aqueous debut single “Our Life Together.” If like us you fell in love with their lo-fi and airy soundscapes, you’ll be more than happy to learn that a full-length album is on the way.
Following up on “The Long Fade Away,” they have now shared the third single from the record. Starting with a very Daft Punk-esque bass, “Until The End” is a loose and quite cosmic offering. Brimming with zen and serenity, the track combines smooth whispered vocals, sparse guitars and shimmering synths sounding like light chimes or bells. As fairly explained in the press release, the extended and gently trippy instrumental passages emphasize atmosphere over action, intention over intellect, imagination over the explicit. Listen below.
