‘The Missing Piece’ is out on July 19th.
Australian folktronica artist Elme is set to release his debut single ‘The Missing Piece’. A delicate and ethereal number characterised by the seamless combination of acoustic and synthetic elements, the song combines aspects of classic singer-songwriter tropes blended aptly with subdued and fascinating electronica.
The song possesses a distinctly pastoral atmosphere. For me, it calls to mind late evenings in the countryside. However, this is offset with the more modern electronic sounds that underpin the gentle sadness that permeates the song.
Elme is the latest project from Thommy Wilson. Introspective and evocatively abstract lyrics abound, complemented by simple but arresting arrangements that sparkle with melancholia and hope. After taking a break from music for a few years, Elme has returned to build on his early promise.
