Baths Continues To Tease His Comeback With 'Extrasolar'

    In late September, electronic pop-chillwave producer Baths, a.k.a. Will Wiesenfeld, signaled a return following a four-year hiatus with the release of two singles, "Yeoman" and "Out" and the announcement of a new album, entitled Romaplasm. Today, he shared the album's third single "Extrasolar".

    While Baths got pop-inspired in "Yeoman" and used a steady "untz-untz" 4x4 beat to create a synthy and frolicsome dance track in "Out", he uses "Extrasolar" for more exploratory purposes. While retaining some indie-pop elements, the track is a mix of sounds, juxtaposing warm and crinkly ambient sounds with a psych-pop hook reminiscent of Animal Collective's Feels. Add a sprinkle of jazz syncopations to keep you on your toes, and you get "Extrasolar", a track that is surprisingly cohesive sonically for all its multifacetedness. Over it all, Baths' vocals reflect on the everyday struggles and banalities of young Americans, be it in work, relationships or technology, in a way that is uniquely his.

    It's clear that Wiesenfeld was using his time off productively, as all three singles released point to a strong return in his newest album. From what we can gather from "Extrasolar" and the other tracks, Romaplasm will be more of the infusion of sublime and awe-inspiring eclecticism for which Baths is known.

    Romaplasm is out November 17, via Anticon Records.
