Laced with psychedelic pop and woozy vocals, "Lava Pool" is a vibrant slacker pop tune from Sweden's multi-talented musician Alec Baker.
Alec Baker, real name Viktor Jansåker, is a guitarist and producer from Sweden. "Lava Pool" is lifted from his forthcoming debut EP, and presents a musician whose music projects far beyond the four walls of his bedroom.
Commencing with a subtle, pounding beat teamed with Baker's relaxed, woozy vocals, "Lava Pool" begins as a patient pop track. As the swirling synth melody is introduced, the track washes away its simplicity with the vibrant melody that enhances the psych-tinged pop chorus about to explode.
The harmonised, woozy vocals plunge into a playful, luminous chorus filled with youthful synths that swim in the same pool as the likes of Dan D'Lion, Oscar Scheller, and Astronomyy.
Speaking about the dream-like nature of the track, Baker says, "I think the song encapsulates the experience of being one hundred percent absorbed in a moment with another person."
The new offering is produced by Summer Heart - who also produced Baker's previous single "Sunslide" - and Hampus Lindén.
