Synth Single Review: "Oneironaut" by Die, Miami, Die!

Karl is a longtime freelancer who's passionate about music, art, and writing.


Die, Miami, Die’s Oneironaut is a gliding synth journey propelled by active bass and driving drums. The track is full of feelings of gentle warmth and positively evolving energy. Hazy synths glow behind trickling, crystalline notes while a nasal-sounding, round synth glides in a dreaming, fragile melody full of melancholy. An active, gruff bass line bounces along and drums trip in and form a solid, shaping pattern with the moving bass.

The aching melody with its laid back, but caressing feeling moves around sparkling synths with a lightly touching feeling. The drums and bass return to add forward motion while delicate chimes accent the melody’s mingling of yearning and warmth, hopeful and roaming. After another drum fill, the energetic pop of the drums and the oscillating bass return while glassy synths flicker and shine and the active bass leaps before we fade on glow and drift.
