Von Sell premieres “Digital Sleep,” a swirling, electronic collage

Von Sell premieres “Digital Sleep,” a swirling, electronic collage

Like the mesmerizing blur of the world passing by as seen through a car window, Von Sell’s newest single “Digital Sleep” swirls with detail faster than we can understand. In a flurry of voices, delayed and warped into the dominant texture of the track, “Digital Sleep” urges us towards attention while never offering a chance to focus. Von Sell says, in an interview with Atwood Magazine: “I think we’re all constantly struggling to see what’s right in front of us. Being glued to your phone certainly doesn’t help but it’s probably the human condition to begin with.”

The track plays true to the idea of short-sightedness but also acknowledges its own investment in the beauty of so much sensory content, constantly veering in new directions, collaging together seemingly unlinked sections. The effect, particularly Von Sell’s production of his vocals into an ethereal backing, is dazzling. Though no concrete date has been released, the single will be part of an upcoming Digital Sleep EP, out this summer. Listen to the track below. – Cameron Carr
