NEW TRACK: Theories of Sweetness - "S'il Vous Plait"

I’m sure you all know by now that the internet is home to unearthed electro-wave gems that are completely at odds with the big-budgeted production and ambition of mainstream pop, most of which relying instead on homemade tricks and lo-fi digital haze to create an appealingly lush ambiance that seeks comfort at the end of the tunnel. And because of this development, we’ve recently traced an alternate universe outside Manila that offers glo-fi and dreambeat comfort for your restless evenings. From Davao’s Skymarines to Cebu’s KaapiN, you can smell that hunger for pastel-coated ideas that take on genre experiments while espousing pop sensibilities, a proof that there’s so much regional talent in the country waiting to get their well-deserved break.

Count Cagayan De Oro-based chillwave duo Theories of Sweetness as one of the most interesting new breeds in the local ambient department. On their spare time, TOS makes moody, intricate piece of bedroom melancholia, combining layers of delicate keyboard melodies and syrupy electronic beats with dragging haze. Distant and textured, their new track “S'il Vous Plait” sweet-talks you to curl up and get cozy, conveying that lackadaisical feeling of youthful abandon in a six-minute pop song. It comes across as some form of a sleep-inducing drug set to headphone music; and the more you listen to it, the more it puts you to daydream unconscious that’s all too sweet you wouldn’t even want to wake up from deep slumber.
