Notaker’s new single is the latest in a long stream of cinematic EDM hits.
It’s been a while since a Notaker single came our way that, after the first listen, didn’t leave our heads for a good while afterwards. The last time was earlier this year with Shimmer, a single that we dubbed “the most chilled out EDM of 2017”. Naturally, that was without hearing the progressive house delight that is Retribution.
Like Notaker’s previous releases, Retribution has that hauntingly cinematic feel that coaxes the listener through its opening with lilting instrumentals that build to sweeping melodies. It feels a lot darker than previous offerings, though the swell of cinematic synths certainly lifts the mood with a sense of euphoric optimism.
