“Cosmo Pollen” by Peter Brombaer lays sounds — wooshes, rough chimes, muffled beeps — atop a whisp of a song, a beat that barely registers as a trap set and a melody that sounds more like the steady tests of a piano tuner than the stuff of which radio dreams are made. With the distant echoes of trip-hop and the atmospheric syncopations of a Hollywood score, it’s a bit like EDM with all the amped-up arena drama siphoned out of it. It’s quite lovely.
Brombaer is based in Groningen, Netherlands. More from him at brombaer.com.
