The Exhalers: “Pearls and Shells”
Portugal’s João/Johnny (aka Mediafired, JCCG, and Sofa Pits) returns with a new track from his Delphinidae-inspired project, The Exhalers. According to the artist, “Pearls and Shells” is “again a little narrative through the eyes of a dolphin and its relationships, in which basic emotions/affections are expressed in that fluffy, spontaneous, mammal way.” It’s hard to beat that description, as it’s just so easy to imagine this winding, mercurial piece as a backing track (or cosmic conversation?) within the daily adventures of our four-lobed brained friends. The heavily effected tones of the Casio CTK-495 also add an appealing element of simplicity that make it all easier for our own two-lobed brains to calm the fuck down for a minute. Meditation aid? Yes, definitely.
This track will serve as the finale of a new musical “trilogy” entitled Look Who’s Back. Check out trailer for that here. We’re excited to see how this semi-narrative, sonic experience takes shape, but in the meantime, take a moment to let this track wrap your head in digital ring bubbles and carry it off to who knows where.
