After a month-long music releasing hiatus, Vanic triumphantly returned to the electronic music scene with longtime partner-in-crime K.Flay. The pair have previously released a handful of tracks in the past, lending K.Flay’s captivating vocals over Vanic’s elaborate synth-padded production. So Slow features both of those components, with a strong sense of melancholy resounding in both artists. Listen to their new track below:
While the lyrics stir the overwhelming feeling that time slows down after a heartbreak, they analogously conjure the experience one might face during, say, a pandemic. Vanic polishes the emotive grit that Grammy-nominated K.Flay renders with clean, sliding production. True to his earliest works, he brandishes characteristic synths and drum pads, but with an additional layer of clarity that wraps the track up with closure.

Individually released on SoundCloud as free downloads, Vanic and K.Flay teamed up to drop 3 tracks. Seamlessly blending their styles in a foreshadowing effort to So Slow, the 5 year old tracks marked a launching point in his own career.

What’s next for Vanic?
After the Vancouver-native producer took a few months off, we’ve all been curious as to what he’s been doing. Despite the radio silence, he’s assured us that his debut album is deep in the works. After a Reddit AMA earlier this morning, he revealed much of the album is finished, and includes some heavier tracks with a new style. While touring is still out of reach, he promised a return to the PNW in the future. Until then, we’re keeping So Slow on repeat!
