Euphoria is a buzzy word right now but few words more aptly describe and capture the energy of Lenka‘s new single, “Ultraviolet“.
There’s a beautiful, Björk-esque swagger dripping all over this song. One thing that sets it apart, however, is the heavy synthwave influence. Those trademark 8th note synthesizers give the song an undeniable kinetic power. A simplistic but powerful kick pattern is used. It’s not quite 4 on the floor because there’s an additional kick added, but this gives “Ultraviolet” a unique bounce. Embellishments from higher synthesizers add to the aura and ambiance of the song.
All the aforementioned elements make for a beautiful foundation that Lenka’s unique and entrancing vocals dance upon. The lyrics repeat in the manner of a mantra and empower the listener. Lenka is living in Ultraviolet and by listening to this (and the whole new ALBUM THAT DROPPED TODAY), you can too. Bring your sunscreen!
