Baths’ new track, “Fade White,” is an eerie journey into nothingness. The percussion that sits underneath the quiet intro sounds like creaking floorboards, or canvas pulled taught over a drum head. The track creeps along, moved forward by a purposeful pulsation. Smooth, frictionless falsetto floats overhead — pleading with us to “fade away with me.” The song fizzles into oblivion, fulfilling the titular promise of a fade to white. Listen below.
