Baths has made a name for himself creating chillwave tunes that pack a heavy punch. The artist né Will Wiesenfeld first made his way into our hearts with “Aminals,” a single off his debut LP, Cerulean. The cute opening sample along with the track’s lush, sun-drenched beat made for a nostalgic treat, bringing back memories of riding my kick-ass big wheel down the street. For the uninitiated, however, “Aminals” does not serve as the most well-rounded introduction to Baths. Wiesenfeld is much more than just a beat maker and a sampler; he constructs luscious beats and uses his beautiful falsetto to hammer home his lyrics of love and lust, not too unlike the song-writing of Ben Gibbard.
On May 28th we will receive Baths’ sophomore album, Obsidian. Having already been teased with the incredible, “Miasma Sky,” Baths decided to once again whet our appetite with, “Ironworks.” The single is another classic example of the Baths we’ve come to adore, complete with piano, drums, strings and that lovely falsetto. Stream it below.
