Treasureseason returns from its year-long hiatus with the dazzling “Puget Sound,” the first track we’ve seen off the forthcoming Archipelago/Don’t Hold Back. The duo met in San Francisco to release 2012’s Oceans before returning to their native England.
“Puget Sound” serves as a perfect re-introduction to Treasureseason’s sound. The ear-to-ear smiles constructed by Powell’s synths are tempered with the lightest touch by Olsson’s breathy melancholy. The result is magic: things seem to move at half speed, or appear slowly out of deep fog. Listen to “Puget Sound” below, and check out the rest of Treasureseason’s discography on their Bandcamp. Archipelago/Don’t Hold Back drops June 24.
