A gorgeous track with soulful electronic sampling and lush vocal allure, “mark” comes via UK producer es.cher. The track implements various vocal recordings from R&B singer Choruses from the Rock; es.cher chopped up the samples and raised the pitch, attuning the melodic cohesion within a soultronica and garage-beat aesthetic. The angelic, stutter-y vocals consume amidst hypnotic rhythms and effervescent synth-led flutters. Exuding a warm and fuzzy melodic character, “mark” is extraordinarily easy to get lost within and put on repeat; its soundscape and ethereal mixing makes for an addictive listening experience.
Describing the track further, es.cher says:
“The single focuses on dark, heavy subject matter about dealing with loss and wishing someone remembers you in a positive light; this is portrayed through soaring hopeful synths and an upbeat drum beat crossed with a sad chord progression and melody.”
