Dublin duo Slow Skies’ new single “Ice Field” feels, fittingly, frozen in time—not anachronistic, but rather the sort of music born of specific, painful moments. A crystallization.

Delicately produced—smartly balancing tasteful percussion with evocative atmospherics—”Ice Field” doesn’t build to a cathartic climax, satisfied, rather, to simmer in a sort of pretty purgatory, a momentary emotional languish that makes great use of singer Karen Sheridan’s wispy voice. It’s music for memories of love simultaneously beautiful and melancholic. Listen below.
