The New Jersey synth-whisperer known as Com Truise is about to embark on an absolutely massive tour and has offered up another track from his recently released Galatic Melt LP to help spread the word. As one might expect, “Ether Drift” is an epic synthscape of a beat, complete with retro-sounding drums, glistening arpeggios, electro bass, and an incalculable number of watery delay trails. Drifting from one melancholy theme to another, the first half of the tune moves similarly to the arch of a side-scrolling video game—first enticing you with an inviting melody, then leading you through ever greater struggles. Sounds like somewhere around the two minute mark, we fight the boss (and win), before Com Truise takes us out with a vast, lengthy outro. You can peep the seriously substantial list of international tour dates after the jump.
