Following the release of last year’s popular Soft Vision EP, which garnered press attention worldwide, Tropics evolved from a one-man project to a full band. New 12-inch Mouves bears the first recorded fruits of that development, with founder Chris Ward’s vocals taking the spotlight.

Tropics’ signature summery shimmer is in full effect on the title track. With a wavering grace that combines dubby, New Order-esque bass; lush, jazzy Rhodes; stretched shoegaze vocals and droning synths, “Mouves” is a woozy and unusual combination that floors the listener with its humid atmosphere.

On their remix, the hotly tipped Keep Shelly in Athens trim the song to its bare essentials, cooling the atmosphere and adding a heavy synth melody and chords borrowed from an early-’90s ambient trance track. It’s all held together with cracking, grime-like snare.
