Wintercoats - Forest of Lovers (Southern Shores Remix)
Like a slow African sunset on the longest, most languidly humid of days in late summer, the Southern Shores mix of Wintercoats' Forest of Lovers is a track that feels innately in touch with nature. For both acts (signed to Chad Valley label Cascine), it's a moment of both mutual beneft and mutual beauty.
From its slowly tumbling rhythms to the ebb and flow of the vocal samples it seems a thing possessed of its own spirit, beyond that of the band itself. Or perhaps both band and song are wrapped up within an ever revolving dimension apart from the world, from which songs as sumptuous as this spring forth ready made.
As a free download, the remix presents an even more attractive proposition, but even without this added incentive, its nectar-laden bliss is wonderfully evident. Love, ecstasy, rapture, joy - all are to be found in this song; a real surprise treat to warm the cockles on a cold winter night and feed dreams of the warmth of seasons to come.
