William Arcane – “Sunfades” (Stereogum Premiere)

Stay A While” pegged London electronic pop experimentalist William Arcane as one of music’s most compelling new voices. “Sunfades,” the latest preview from Arcane’s upcoming Reckless EP, affirms that notion. It’s a complex, modern take on melancholic synthesizer music that feels like the product of a great singer-songwriter and a forward-thinking producer at once. There are traces of Caribou and Thom Yorke in this music’s DNA, but even more than “Stay A While,” “Sunfades” establishes Arcane as a visionary in his own right. Listen below.

Reckless is out 10/20 on Pictures Music. Pre-order it here.
