Back in July of last year, these were the words we used to describe Austin, Texas-based singer/songwriter and electro-musician, Mark DiLillo’s debut EP, The Great Exchange, under his moniker, Welsh Avenue.
With many years of classical piano training under his belt, the former biology major (and one-time aspiring vet) felt the calling of music some time ago—a calling which has not faded.
Following up last years single, Holy Ghost, is this years, Disco Moon, a plush soundscape of melody which DiLillo himself describes as “…a cross between alternative, electronic, experimental and nu-wave music”, that is being called space-pop.
“Oh I am not transformed by anything
Except for the love of the stars and the sky and people like you and me
And no, this ain’t a rainbow road
This is a dance floor that you can call home …”
—Welsh Avenue, Disco Moon
DiLillo’s intention of creating sonic respite with his music is well intact with this latest bit of Ableton-driven magic. Be sure to don your headphones in order to fully enjoy the etheric and celestial sounds which open the track, panning back-and-forth with crisscrossing, ambient tones; eventually breaking out into a spacey, rhythmic disco-jam with a simple message of enjoying the ride and enjoying the music.
