Columbus, Ohio experimental electronic pop artist Dallin Stevenson aka Rafting shares his floating, softly shimmering new single, “Loading Screen“. With Stevenson’s tender, yearning vocals and wistful lyrics — “We can never be too far away / you and me can arrive / in this life / on time” — and those pillowy, soft-funk synths, “Loading Screen” occupies some dream-like liminal space between distant, twinkling chillwave transmission and tranquil ambient pop, vaguely recalling some of the dreamier vibes from Toro y Moi’s most recent record. Rafting goes on tour with FADE starting this week, check those dates (including a few with George Clanton) and listen to “Loading Screen” below:
