Ginla Brings Silent Twists To Dreamy Indietronica In “Infinite”

Toronto/Brooklyn duo ginla drifts between tranquility and dreamy rush in their single “Infinite” where they toy with silent tension and showering synths to build an eccentric soundscape of chill indietronica. The tune borrows the rhythmic structure of folk, but is heavily coated with swelling atmosphere that rely both on beats and silence. Even during muted instances of “Infinite,” the growing tension is still present. “Infinite” sounds deceptively chill at first, but it’s actually ready to kick you in the ear:
