Summer fun is here for us in the northern hemisphere, as the sun cuts through the looming clouds overhead – having lingered for what seems like an eternity. Along with this shift comes dwi’s ‘Freak N Out’, a head-nodding indie-pop jawn, perfectly suiting the late-night, seasonal aesthetic.
From the gate, a wobbling synth & pocketed groove entrance the listener, while melodies begin to swirl around in helical patterns.
