Portland-based musical project Schaus continues to bring his inventive, ambient brand of electro-pop to the world in the form of his upcoming release, an EP set for mid-month titled Quite Okay. Playing guitar, piano, bass, electronic drums, and computer, and producing and singing all of his own songs, Schaus is just the type of refreshing, well-rounded musician that we’ve been waiting for. Today, we’ve got the exclusive premiere of his new track “Choosy”.
Light electronic sounds – something along the lines of a kind robot or your favorite video game – give way to Schaus’ dark and luscious vocals, the overall mood light and fun. But his lyrics are actually something to ponder, the actuality of the track not as innocent and light as the soundscape would allude to. So make sure to focus on those words to get the full story, and keep your eyes peeled for Quite Okay next week!
August 24 – Portland, OR. – Mississippi Studios (w/ Wild Ones and Blossom)
