Since releasing his self-titled album in 2014 it's been non stop for Melbourne's Roland Tings. Between touring the US with Chrome Sparks and supporting RUFUS on their upcoming Australian Tour, Tings has managed to release one of his most brilliant and sonically mature tracks yet.
Premiering today on The Line OF Best Fit, "Eyes Closed" is taken from his forthcoming EP expected early next year via NYC label Casine.
“I wanted to make a song that would capture what I could only describe as cold euphoria. The exhilaration of being feeling untethered after a long time in the same routine. The intoxicating smell of eucalyptus after a long time in the city. I wanted to make something that captured the beauty of that coastal landscape in winter. The way the trees on the windward side of the headland grow with twisted branches, braced against the southerly storms. I wanted to make something that sounded like total release, coming out of a dark place into somewhere filled with light."
A truely captivating and refreshing slice of deep house, the shimmering driving track is a good indication of a spectacular EP to follow.
