Over the past decade, Baths, the project of Los Angeles artist Will Wiesenfeld, has constructed a whole galaxy of material. He's still got plenty on the way too, and going forward, it'll be released on his new label, Basement's Basement, a "self-owned home for new Baths material" as well as a cheeky Silent Hill 2 reference. To kick off the new endeavor, he's premiering a new single called “Wistful (Fata Morgana),” a brisk rush of desire with a dense sea breeze coursing throughout. "You're still out on that boat somewhere, and I am making do," he calls out to the beyond. Is the distance expanding or contracting? Is there inherent hope in hopelessness? Wiesenfeld revels in these ambiguities.
“I love to counteract more lonely subject matter with really danceable tracks and i think this is right in line with that," he wrote in an email to The FADER. "A little vignette about loneliness paired with one of the fastest BPMs i’ve worked in.” Stream the track below, via Basement’s Basement, and stay tuned for more from Baths.
