Blending an elegant melodic aesthetic, subtle electronics, and a smattering of studio wizardry, Chin Chin’s Shallow Dive sits firmly on the fence between lounge, IDM, and folk. Though the technological element of the recording is significant, enough space is left for the acoustic instruments to breathe, making for quite a pleasant excursion into dreamland. Melancholy string textures and a dash of glitch bring to mind images of both nature and technology, future and past, light and dark. Lovely.
