Premiere: Collective State – “Missing”
“Missing” is a consuming new track from Collective State, a new project born out of a love of atmospheric songwriting. A heartfelt vocal backing repeats “missing,” alongside lush synths to start, establishing a hypnotic feel. Hetty Clark’s powerful lead emerges shortly thereafter, with both vocals overlapping to beautiful effect around the 50-second mark. The flute-like tone past the one-minute turn injects a caressing, rainy-day feel to the track. “Missing” is a laid-back gem from a very promising project, who show both a knack for gripping vocal melodies and tranquilly engaging soundscapes. The track was included in this Relax playlist from Apple Music Pop for a reason.
