White Sea: Mountaineer

Listen to “Mountaineer” Here

The great White Sea is M83’s Morgan Kibby. The classically trained pianist, ethereal synth-pop princess has carried over her talents, still wearing her many hats of composer, producer, lyricist, remixer, and writer. The emotional pull feels so palpable in the increasing draw of oozing beauty that builds up and up to a crescendo of fiery drum, vocal, and string layers. The visceral feeling evoked by her haunted Enya-like sounds makes sense since she explains her goal in making music is to “create a universe for listeners.” Despite the difficulty of her creative goal, White Sea seems intuitive in its climax points that bring the listener into a realm of submission, letting the lush of angelic and moody undertones take you away. Enjoy the ride.
