Placid Cactus – “Wishing Well”


A track from Placid Cactus‘ new EP, REM, “Wishing Well” entrances with its heady mixture of dreamy synths and murky guitar textures. The glistening synths and lush yet bouncy bass line concoct an immediately gratifying introduction. The vocals bellow with a post-punk nonchalance in the verses, developing enjoyably and with bright qualities into the more effervescent expanse as the second minute approaches. “Wishing Well” is a stellar and melodic output from Placid Cactus, whose REM EP is streaming below:
