Tan Cologne – “Visitation”


The caressingly hypnotic “Visitation” is a striking single from Tan Cologne, the New Mexico-based duo of Lauren Green and Marissa Macias. Gorgeous, mellow vocals and light guitar twangs find stellar accompaniment in sporadic textural buzzing and nocturnal synth touches — aesthetically conjuring the likes of Mazzy Star. “Visitation” mesmerizes with its chilled-out, enveloping aesthetic dream-pop qualities.

The duo explains: “This song was inspired by communications with otherworldly beings. We recorded the instrumentation and developed the lyrical concept through envisioning crossing into unknown dimensions where other beings teach and share through ancient ways.”
