Manatee Commune Release Ambient Electronic Track, ‘Faulted’, Ahead Of July Album

The project of Spokane multi-instrumentalist Grant Eadie, Manatee Commune is an ambient dream of electronic music, with ‘Faulted’ the most recent release. He’s set to release his new album in July.

Eadie’s classical training (he started playing violin from an early age) and love of all things dance, is reflected in his multi-layered music, which are mixed in such a way as to give equal weight to each instrument. The percussive elements, shakers, bells, tambourines, rain sticks, are all live; there is nothing to detract from either them or the synths.

‘Faulted’ is, to lovers of electronic music, a pleasing and translucent composition, with scattered synth vocalisations peppered within the consistent synths and percussion. Light and pleasant, drops of fluid synthesised moments flow in and out, while the vocals peep around ethereal corners.

At about the halfway point the drums ramp it up, and start driving the rhythms harder; meanwhile the vocalisations become more heavenly, it’s as though a choir of angels have descended. Everything returns to how it was before in the final quarter of the track, the ambience of the drums keeping the pace giving the track its heartbeat, as it were.

You can listen to ‘Faulted’ below. Find out more about Mantee Commune and their music online on their official website, Spotify, Facebook, and Instagram.
