TOURIST – PLACID ACID (Chillwave/SynthPop – UK)


Before starting his ambitious new solo project under the Tourist moniker, Brighton-based producer Will Phillips had already made a name for himself as Little Loud with his remixes of HEALTH, Yeasayer, Clock Opera, Goldfrapp or Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.

Clock Opera - Once & For All (Little Loud Remix)     

This time around Phillips goes for a mostly instrumental blend of synth driven chillwave, somewhat reminiscent of Washed Out or Memory Tapes. With crisp beats and almost psychedelic melodies, his 4-track debut EP Placid Acid bridges the gap between electronica and pop music and it does so in high style! Get the EP from March 12th via Make Mine Records.

For more info, find Tourist on Facebook and stream his music on SoundCloud.
