Today’s featured music comes from PNW native Manatee Commune! Fresh off of the launch of his “Manatee Commune & Friends” quarterly DJ set residency at Holocene (OR), Manatee Commune debuted the first single featuring Allie Crystal off his highly anticipated sophomore album, PDA, via Bastard Jazz Recordings. “Carried Away” lifts your spirits and creates a sweet synthesis of uplifting melodies and bittersweet lyrics which transports listeners into a dream like euphoria.

The track immediately energized me creatively and as I began working on it, it came together very quickly … It captures the pain that wells up when your heart is stuck in the paradox of loving something that can’t be had. I used piano to mimic the glow of admiration juxtaposed with booming, rhythmic cellos to symbolize the harshness of cold, spontaneous departure. -Manatee Commune
