“Melatonin” opens with a lushly calming build that evokes euphoria throughout the 5 minute track. Listening through layers of guitar, low-humming synths, twinkling keys, and subdued vocals is the auditory embodiment of walking through a lively garden on a sunny June afternoon. Carter Vail’s melody fills up the soundscape’s vast space while not obscuring it’s dense textures. The next time insomnia strikes, consider Vail’s blissfully lethargic sound as an alternative late night soother.
