Track of the Day: Nearly Oratorio “Down to the Minute” (2019)

Softly spoken and infectiously calm, “Down to the Minute” is the latest single from Nearly Oratorio, the latest project from Australian duo Kllo’s Simon Lam and a remarkable showcase for his new EP, A Comforting Fact.

The highly ornate and plucky instrumental that floats through this minimalistic song is as pillow-soft as Lam’s whispered vocals, and as spine-tingling as your favourite ASMR channel.

“Down to the Minute” follows the release of the EP’s lead single “Jupiter”, which has a similarly tender atmosphere. That should tell you quite a bit about this forthcoming EP, which is being described by Simon as featuring “exposed, intelligent and purposeful melodies”.
