Synth-ladden pop songs that favor the side of experimental are a dime a dozen. It seems as if every other second, a new song emerges. But when they’re done well? What a difference it makes. Eric Berglund, the man behind ceo, has shared another taste from his forthcoming EP, Wonderland, and this is one of those rare needle-in-the-hay moments. “Mirage,” much like the title track from the EP before it, also features some stellar work from Berglund. There’s a sense of dread and darkness present throughout the track, but the weightless, ethereal vocals cuts through it all for a balanced and undeniably alluring result.
Wonderland drops on February 4. Listen to “Mirage” below.
