There’s Talk – “Ascension”


“Ascension” is a newly released track from There’s Talk, the Oakland-based dream-pop trio that impressed with tracks like “Give It Up,” Soundry,” and “A Slow Return” in the past. This track comes from their recent EP, Great Falls. Showing a steadily unfolding dream-pop glow, “Ascension” attains a hypnotic, meditative state via twinkling, bubbling keys and caressing vocal charm. Olivia Lee’s vocals move with patient precision, navigating seamlessly amidst the icy soundscape achieved via the keys and slight rhythms. Stream the excellent Great Falls EP on Spotify.

“Ascension” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop.
