The clue is in the name. Everything on Sun Glitter’s debut sounds like it’s been wrapped in a tinted glow, sparkling and crisp, as if you’ve just stepped out into a brisk early morning. Based in Luxembourg, Victor Ferreira’s Everything Could Be Fine evokes some memory of those who have preceded him, somewhere between M83 and Balam Acab. It’s an inherently organic album, packed to the brim with fuzzy, warm synths and sun-baked, staggered beats, stretching and warping them into a slow motion sequence of tracks. Thick, substantial textures are plentiful, with pitched up, hazy vocals and atmospherics.

Opening track ‘Beside Me’ demonstrates the aesthetic the album takes well. Staggered claps amidst melancholic synths and echoing heartstring-tugging vocals. It’s a formula that pervades throughout much of the album and is the source of its greatest strength and weakness. ‘Too Much To Lose’ has male and female vocalists calling each other, bouncing off one another and intertwining. Some tracks persist in the 4x4 mould, while others are more shuffling, chopped up affairs. Whatever the variation, it’s always soothing and relaxed, almost effortless in its execution.

‘Find Your Way (See)’ takes the album into darker, more ethereal territory. It’s here that the pitched vocals perhaps take a little too much out of others’ books, sounding eerily similar to a certain Hyperdub producer. Somewhat surprisingly, it’s when Sun Glitters differentiates that he comes out strongest. Closing track ‘Everything Could Be Fine’ takes a different tone. Deeper, funkier bass and neatly repetitive samples, it’s short and sharp in its nature and you don’t get that elsewhere.

‘Love Me’ is an album highlight, breaking through the delicate melancholy in a textual layering of operatic voices, gasping vocals and rippling, vibrating synths. It’s the closest the album gets to a grand, epic scale, everything else straddling the line between comfortable and ambitious. However, despite the variation and unique touches dabbed onto each track, there’s a nagging feeling throughout that they bleed into each other. There’s definitely a distinct style to this album, and whether or not the theme it sticks to so rigidly is beneficial or hindering remains to be seen.

Sun Glitter’s debut remains an album to listen to, however, it’s best moments are effervescent and pure in their nature, asking you to have a lie down and relax, letting go of your inhibitions and letting the warmth and sunshine wash over you. It’s a lovely substitute for the non-existent summer this year.
