Missions - “Spoken”
Los Angeles-based electro-pop savant Missions makes his full-length debut with the momentous new Subcreature out August 2nd, 2019. Through the use of drum machines, synthesizers and electronic vocals, solo producer Josh Mills adds a rich emotional gradient and a fresh rhythmic step to the archetypal darkwave narrative as Missions. This impressive collection of addictive bass lines and smooth drum beats are produced and arranged with the proficiency of a polished studio engineer, while the core of Mills’ craftsmanship explores the shaded nuances of seduction and vulnerability. Subcreature is perfectly suited for both late-night dance floors and private listenings, with creative subtleties that peek through the hook-laden anthems and hopelessly romantic lyrics. The heartfelt songwriting and sculpted sound design on Subcreature reflect a unique interpretation of funk, new wave and early electronic music, making up the sophisticated language of Missions.
Missions’ latest single “Spoken” is a cinematic dance banger with a throbbing bass line and disco beat submerged in expressive, melancholy synth chords. Minimal pop arrangements allow room for catchy vocoder crooning that make it hard to not sing along and impossible to stay still .
