Melbourne based producer ROLAND TINGS delivers a truly stunning new single at the onset of summer in the southern hemisphere. ‘Eyes Closed’ builds on the balearic textures showcased in his previous releases ‘Pala‘ and ‘Hedonist‘ while taking the sound deeper into the night with acid house elements and glimmering string sections setting the vibe for an early morning sunrise on the coast.
“I wanted to make a song that would capture what I could only describe as cold euphoria. The exhilaration of being feeling untethered after a long time in the same routine. The intoxicating smell of eucalyptus after a long time in the city. I wanted to make something that captured the beauty of that coastal landscape in winter. The way the trees on the windward side of the headland grow with twisted branches, braced against the southerly storms. I wanted to make something that sounded like total release, coming out of a dark place into somewhere filled with light.”
