. Though by definition "ennui" is the "feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement" Jim Doutrich's music couldn't evoke a more different sentiment. His music is a beautiful blend of bleepy electronica and smooth, melodic vocals that can brighten up even the darkest of days. Fellow electronic artist Sun Glitters took the shimmering single, "Circles," and slowed/stripped it down a bit to create a haunting remix. Stream and download the chilling rendition above.
"Sun Glitter's remix of "Circles" is a welcomed minimal approach to the song," Doutrich admits. "The vocals are slathered with a deep reverb and the mood is a bit darker, but the end result is still the intense feeling of nostalgia."
The original version of "Circles" appears on Ennui's upcoming album, Telepathic Beat, which is slated for a September 23 release via Mush Records.
