“Sea In Between” off Miss Geo’s latest album, Connection, is an multifaceted electropop journey. To peel back its layers is to experience this melodic journey firsthand.
As the synths in the intro lead your mind to ‘80’s pop, they quickly surprise you as they undergo a transformation into a modern 21st century sound. The song maintains that duality throughout—one moment you’re dancing in a club and the next you’re watching the end montage of a John Hughes movie. But more than the just the sound, the form of the track is just as complex. There are flashes of strong vocals and instrumentation that demands attention, but there are also varying dreamy moments where the clubbing sound seems to be heard from underwater. Time (and tempo) seems to slow down just so you can catch your breath and marvel at the diverse tune that is composed ever so seamlessly. By the end of “Sea In Between,” you’re left with the taste of a masterpiece that captures everything wonderful about synth pop of the past, present, and by the sound of this song, the future too.
