The beginning moment’s of June Pageant’s Wundergurl present themselves as a dreamy mix of sustained ambient chords and a driving drum and bass groove. Lauren Rosato’s soft-spoken, intimate vocal delivery enters the song and compliments the subtlety of the instrumentation, tying together the delicate feel. Her melody sits very nicely atop the keys, harmonizing with the voicings while also establishing its own memorable independence. The track settles well into this mood and continues to express it tastefully with moments of differing dynamics throughout. A passionate conclusion featuring a beautiful explosion of reverberant vocals, new melodies, and the return of the solidifying groove delivers the record’s peak intensity into a mellow, fading vocals-and-keys outro.
June Pageant fuse together moments of intimate delicacy with ambient, dreamlike textures on their new single Wundergurl, and glue it all together with a great groove and engaging dynamics. Also featuring lovely melodies and a catchy chord progression, this is definitely a song to check out.
