Milan’s Musetta has a lush instrumental delivery and blankets this new track Atlantide with careening vocals and elemental synth stabs. The percussive backdrop is smooth and sets up vocalist Marinella Mastrosimone’s ethereal vocal delivery. Yes, this is so in touch with Portishead from the start, but it moves into a new realm, into more balance and suggestive atmospheres.
I find the jazzy standard in the percussion to really drive this track. You can almost feel the waves and a sinking feeling as the track wanders into the abyss pulling the listener along.
