The first (official) remix for Nomadic Firs comes in the form of a mostly "Experimental-Psych-Pop" overhaul of Matt Honkonen's original "Sea of Clouds" off Take Me Home. The song was largely inspired by a photo shoot swap one early saturday morning in the Smoky Mountain National Park. Both projects seem to be influenced from the still and smoke swirling all around them that day. Such a unique and symbiotic experience.
"Sea Of Clouds is a heady, intoxicating brew, alive with shimmering resonance, the lush production complimenting the wholesome, world worn vocal, delivering a transfixive, enveloping ambience. There is a succinctness to the name Nomadic Firs, which underscores this release – Sea Of Clouds deftly juxtaposes the mutable elements of air and water, melding them with a wandering, effusive stability."
"Emerging producer Nomadic Firs has made Matt Honkonen‘s “Sea Of Clouds” sound like it is swimming 10,000 feet below the surface. It’s a dreamy remix but where one is immersed in the water as oppose to air. It’s a shimmering remix, one that will relax every sense in your body and have you lose yourself in the subtle brilliance of Nomadic Firs’ production and Honkonen’s voice." ~ The Revue
"Transported somewhere idyllic by this Nomadic Firs remix of Matt Honkonen."
