Wisp shares new single ‘See you soon’

19-year-old shoegaze artist on the tip of everyone’s tongue, Wisp, shares her latest single ‘See you soon,’ via Interscope.

Staying true to the dusky tensions, dynamic lift-offs, and the towering guitars of her previous releases, ‘See you soon’ reinforces Wisp’s penchant for precise maximalism. The song’s verses gather momentum deliberately with a swirl of chorus-effects and glide guitar modulation so that when the inevitable explosion hits, it’s an indelible and cathartic release of tension. Wisp’s intuitive understanding of songcraft and arrangement continues to evolve, and, as ‘See you soon’ proves, she’s quickly become adept at delaying the anticipated payoff, simultaneously subverting and delivering on the listener’s expectations.

Of the track, Wisp says, “‘See you soon’ is about being infatuated with a person and wanting to spend all of your time with them, but the resolve at the end of the song represents knowing that person will not last and the feelings on their side aren’t as passionate as yours.”
