Tourist – “Waves”

What I love most about electronic music is that so much of the time you don’t really need to worry about what a song is about, and it makes my job pretty easy. Producers like Tourist create textural works that negate the need for content; instead, they remind you of specific moments and make you feel the world differently through unconventional sonic artistry. Will Phillips’ new single, “Waves,” does exactly that. Inaugurated by the sound of ebbing water, the track eventually evolves into a more nuanced interpretation of that same comforting noise. It’s also necessary to note that Phillips co-wrote Sam Smith’s Grammy Award-winning single “Stay With Me,” and he’s worked with Jessie Ware in the past. Listen and download “Waves” below
