It says a lot that this new single from 23:23 is my favorite track of the week, especially considering the great acts that have put out songs like Wildhoney and the Mantles. But, a great song cannot be overlooked, so I’m happily imploring you to fall in love with the new effort from the project of Delay Trees frontman, Rami. Earlier this year, Soliti released a record trilogy of Remi’s work, but now there’s a new EP, titled To Die on a Faraway Island with You. This single alone has this understated beauty, falling into the relaxed approach between Rami and friend Ringer Manner. This new EP will be released by Soliti on October 2nd, and it looks to be another brilliant piece of pop music.

This week Soliti releases the trilogy from 23:23, which is the side-project of Rami Vierula, the frontman of Delay Trees. I’ve really been captivated by the music in the three album, with Torero being my particular favorite…if I had to pick just one. There’s this interesting emotion that comes from the collection of songs; it’s like drifting, floating along to the space created by construction of the songs. There are some lo-fidelity bedroom tendencies, yet other moments burst forth with atmospheric noise; it all fits together, tying all the pieces together in perfect unison. There’s a new video available today, which should give you further introduction into the world of 23: 23.
In all the SXSW recovery process, I must have listened to close to 200 songs, but none of those have stuck with me, or inspired me to write a few shoddy words more than this new track from 23:23. There’s a lo-fidelity approach in the songwriting, but there’s this incredible pop sensibility that pervades, seeping through the cracks in the melodies, and the careful little touches like the repeated vocal after the 2 minute mark. It’s just one of many songs that’s been written by Rami Vierula, who also plays in Delay Trees; he’s composed three albums in the band’s downtime, so Soliti Music will be releasing all three as the 23:23 Album Trilogy…available May 8th.
