Oakland’s Shortcircles crafts lush, R&B-nodding tapestries on his Between Waves LP.
Lead single ‘On My Mind’ is typical of the output of Shortcircles (aka Matthew Tammariello): dreamy synths, crystalline arpeggios, and hip-hop-influenced beats are intertwined as a counterweight to the feathery vocals of Sarah K. Melfy.
The video is a DIY, “day-in-the-life” tour through Tammariello’s current home of Oakland, warts and all. Watch it below. ‘On My Mind’ appears on Between Waves, out now on Plug Research.
