Forhill & VIQ - "Arrival"

A sparkling synthwave track with crisp production, "Arrival" careens forth with fluttering synths and a steady four-on-the-floor drum beat. The highlight of the track is in how the lead melodies seemingly glide away from the listener, drifting in a wave of reverb as if being plucked fresh from the air. Though the production is strong, the songwriting does not leave much of an impression; the notes are fleeting and pass without a notable hook. It all serves the overall aesthetic, functioning as a perfunctory vignette of a memory you dimly remember before continuing on with your day.
