As Dialect deliver the serene Advanced Myth this Valentines Day, Getintothis’ Phil Morris genially requites on the blissful aural pleasure we received.

Yielding suspense and tranquillity Advanced Myth is a profoundly immersive journey of sophisticated music production.
Developers invites you in with a Steve Reich evoking found audio loop, which is gradually enveloped in a delightful marinade of warm horns and panned synths.

Evolving only as the song cascades into yet another sublime transition, as Hung Rose unravels into Teams you are at once captivated by remarkably expressive piano playing.
The Youniverse is particularly pleasurably too, not only for its considered brass arrangement, but also for its employment of Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) sampling.
