Toronto multi-instrumentalist Ursa Major dropped his slow-burning alt-R&B track “Dusk” back in January to positive review, and now with that trippy, futuristic hit in hand, the young artist has returned with his latest single “5am/Intro”, which will be off his upcoming Lo-Fi Sky EP.
The slick production playfully contrasts with Ursa Major’s relaxed delivery, throwing dense bass lines and psychedelic textures into the mix. Made for the late hours of the night, he explains the track’s paralleled meaning:
“‘5AM’ discusses a person, down on their luck, escaping the normality of the work place and adventuring into the wilderness in an attempt to embrace the night. This is the general theme of my upcoming album. Escapism.”
Kick back to the single below.
