Spanish-born, London-based producer Pablo Serrano—better known by his moniker PBSR—has returned with a second single from his upcoming EP ...and dusky doors.
The introspective single, titled "Holding," is a masterclass in good production. It is for those who scoff at electronic music or dare to call it hollow. "Holding" is anything but—it's fragile and emotive, the ambient sounds layered expertly over one another, the vocal bursting through the electronica is PBSR airing his vulnerability in full visibility of a crowd. Of the track, Serrano says:
'Holding' was the last song I wrote for the EP. It is one of the most intense songs I've ever written, after I struggled to find myself and my mind space in London, and I think the song conveys that fragility. it includes some ambient recording from the Tate, where I spent quite some time during this period.
Although he draws clear influences from Sigur Ros to Brian Eno, PBSR's sound is wholly unique. ...and dusky doors is sure to see him delve further into this exploration of emotion in electronica.
