Sea-dark wine

Briseis, by Paul Manship

There’s a kind of dark-Disney vibe with this song, especially in the backing vocals, which murmur and hum intermittently. Juicy is thrumming with voice, actually: the stately lead vocals command and invite (“Come play with me” and “Play here with me”), reinforced by cooing ‘la la las’ and ‘whoa-ooh-ohs’ flying by. The whole album has that same sort of luxuriant layering too—it all sounds very pretty and fine in your ears, richly and pleasantly thick—though it doesn’t seem like the band draped everything in extra sound just because they could. Synesthetica is full but not excessive; it keeps unveiling neat little tricks the more you listen to it.
