“EccoPortal” is the opening track on Isla Den’s new EP, Acid Dream, out today via Toronto collective and label Bedroomer.
Toronto’s electronic duo Isla Den, which consists of Ellie Manning and Michael Reale, unveils today their aptly-named sophomore EP, Acid Dream, which explores existentialism in the digital age and loneliness in virtual space. The opening track of the project, “EccoPortal”, is an ethereal and introspective cut which despite its languidness draws from the underground club and rave cultures. Encapsulating the balance between spirituality and science, the track sounds particularly trippy and melancholic with its dehumanized vocals and wistful ambient textures. Listen below.
