Dubbed as music for dance parties on tiny clouds, ambient weaver, Krost, unveils the latest track “Ice Out.” The Anaheim-based, multi-instrumentalist crosses a dreamy line while pushing towards a more cinematic soundscape. Heavily leading with an indietronica structure, Krost polishes with a romantic pop hook while stepping into the limelight versus previous tracks heard.
Delivered with a youthful mindset and insightful lull in Krost’s vocals, “Ice Out” seems to evolve towards confidence; not hiding behind a thick vocal reverb. The atmospheric cultivation is a welcoming cool tone and sensually glides before transitioning into an assortment of samples and of a cluttered mindset.
Fragmented lyrics mirror Krost’s indecisiveness, “Ice out my mind / shut off the body,” before finding a moment of relief. “This tune is about the chaotic/glitchy mess and back and forth that preoccupies our minds when we’re deciding whether it’s best to stay or LEAVE (p.s., you should leave),” says Krost.
Translating into a a very intimate and minimalistic visual of assortment stills and abstract editing, the overall feel that Krost relays is that of a dreamer. The D.I.Y. aurora of the video crafts a personable thread to the artist, dwindling into sober and bright patches, still craving more from the dream-pop melody.
From tiny clouds to rough cement on Earth, Krost is a fresh face and sound that makes grey matter a little more enjoyable to listen to, and brighter.
