Last year, Botnek's Gordon Huntley joined forces with the late Pierce Fulton for a collaborative musical project called Leaving Laurel. Iconic dance music label Anjunadeep today released the duo's new single "Winter In The Woods," which the pair finished—along with a full album—just prior to Fulton's tragic death.
The wistful sound Fulton and Gordon have created as Leaving Laurel departs from what fans have come to expect from them individually. "Winter In The Woods" opens with a spellbinding ambiance as a melancholic piano guides listeners through spacey synths and subdued percussion. The feathery sound design lends to an organic feel, emulating what the pair must have felt while writing the track while isolated in the woods of Connecticut and Vermont.
Take a listen to "Winter In The Woods" below.
