Pretty much explains it all doesn’t it? No need for me to add anything when the template is spelled out in pure color.
Water. Lots of it. In a pinch, your friend’s swimming pool would do the trick. Water is the primo locale for chilwave. Nobody knows this better than chilwave pioneer Warshed Out.
Ernest Greene is from Georgia, a coastal state. Greene likely had childhood trips out to those Eastern shores, dreaming as wide as the ocean. Hard to believe some people have never experienced the ocean, but the feeling is immense. With “Feel It All Around”, Greene captured that nostalgic longing for the infinite. It expresses a floating, carefree tone most suitable for sun-baked lounging with splashing sounds in the distance. It beckons the listener to pop open their Coleman Performance Cooler and pull out two Corona Light’s as the sunset dips into the horizon, creating a sort-of half-day phenomenon.
It’s a truly remarkable song that may have you wondering its purpose as the Portlandia theme song.
Hope that clears it up.
Be sure to add “Feel It All Around” to any of your chilwave playlists.
