The chiillwave has reached Canada. Even Guelph, which, let’s be honest, itsn’t exactly a summer paradise. That’s where the glo-fi duo Mathemathic comes from, although you’d never guess it from the band’s debut single “Breaststroke.” It’s a blissed-out wash of flickering systems, laid back electro beats and sighing vocal harmonies. The sleepiness is inescapable, with each lyric so drawn out that the refrain of “it’s alright” seems to take the pair an impossibly long time to sing.

The track comes from Mathemagic EP, which came out last week via Paper Bag.
