It’s rare that music feels truly original– but Everythings nails that obstacle on his latest, “Ache.” The moniker for Buffalo-based Alex Behrens, Everythings’ debut track quickly overwhelms your senses, distracting from the dark and bringing in fresh feelings and thoughts. Recorded and mixed entirely by Behrens (in his bedroom), “Ache” evokes influences of Toro Y Moi, Wild Nothing, and Jay Som. Layered vocal harmonies create an ethereal, dreamy tone while punchy synths act as the backbone of the track.
“Ache” embodies sunset drives with a new crush, beach volleyball with your friends, and campfire goodbyes– it’s nostalgia, hope, and acceptance in under five beautiful minutes.
