Shines – Hushed (Feat. K.Raydio) [TMN PREMIERE]

Shines
Hushed (feat. K.Raydio)

We speak from experience here when we tell you Mondays can be rough. After a few precious days off from work, it’s not easy being thrown back into the fire, and for many of us we’re reduced to nothing but unproductive balls of drowsiness until we reach for our first cup of miracle brew. That’s why we’re here to underscore the importance of Tuesdays, an oft-neglected day of the week that doesn’t receive very much attention at all. We’d like to think Tuesdays are where we begin to hit our stride again and really get our groove back; if only every groove was like the one we’re about to share with you today. Tuesdays were made for songs like this–a delightful treat that rewards you for making it to Day 2 of your hectic week.

Arriving by way of LA based producer Shines, “Hushed” stays faithful to the song’s title for much of its length, flush with tranquil melodies that build gradually into a meticulous arrangement of vocal loops, delicate harps and soft drums that work together in perfectly synchronous harmony to create a lush and vivid soundscape. The true essence of the song however, isn’t discovered until around the midway point, when K.Raydio┬álends her gorgeous pipes to breathe some soul into the scintillating tune. “Hushed” is the type of song that can cure the tensest of nerves, serving as a perfect remedy anytime you’re feeling the blues.

Look for the track to be featured on Shines’ upcoming self-titled EP, set for release via Color Station on August 5th. The song is available for purchase today, along with pre-orders for the project on iTunes.
