English producer Bibio has cut his teeth on experimental compositions that tend towards the electronic. With “Down To The Sound,” he shows his proclivity for acoustic work as well. Make no mistake, the complexity is still present as the guitars layer and swirl in alternating staccato. Wilkinson sings a gentle melody over the strums that is at once calming and sad. This track is atmospheric and moody, but its emotional weight isn’t overwhelming. Bibio demonstrates his versatility with this lovely short piece, proving that he is just as adept at small statements as he is at grand ones.

Check out the song below and look for The Green EP, out January 27th.
