Favorite tracks with ethereal vocals?

Hey everybody,

I'm hoping that the collective ears of this place might be able to point me in the right direction

Can any of you recommend some tracks with ethereal vocals - downtempo, ambient, or otherwise? I've been scouring Soundcloud and Spotify for days now and can't seem to find anything I like.

I'm looking for a track with a voice that gives you goosebumps when you hear it. The last one I heard that was like this was:

Minus Blue - Be As One (Klangstein Remix)

Any suggestions you could provide would be awesome!

Thanks!

Not entirely sure what you mean with ethereal...

Here is a beautiful post-rock track, those vocals give me goosebumps every time.

Re: Favorite Tracks with Ethereal Vocals?

Oh my god Windy & Carl. I owned two of their albums in college, yet I forgot they even existed. Looked at their album covers and it all came back. What else have I completely forgotten over the years?

Re: Favorite tracks with ethereal vocals?

The legend that is Kirsty Hawkshaw (of Opus III 'It's A Fine Day fame) - a lot of her solo works are ambient/downtempo with her very ethereal, angelic vocals.

I can't post links yet, but among many, some that stand out to me are...

on YouTube...
Leafy Lane - deep, ethereal, smooth trip hop


One Moment - warm, summery, sexy trip hop


Lavender - ambient/singer-songwriter on piano


on SoundCloud
Two Trees EP with Ulrich Schnauss - epic, euphoric, emotive chillout

'After The Rain'


Meteors


Dreaming Of Now


I love this woman.

Re: Favorite tracks with ethereal vocals?

I'm quite enjoying the suggestions people have posted here so far! My first is an obvious go-to, but Chicane - Saltwater, both the original and Mothership mix have yet to fail me after all these years. Goosebump city.

Anyway, not yet able to post links but MERCE - My World grabbed me a few weeks ago, and got me through a rainy morning commute beautifully. Had it on loop. It's on Youtube, and I'd say it's definitely worth the manual URL entry!

The Thrillseekers remix of this is utterly amazing too...



Make sure not to confuse it with the Thrillseekers House Remix, which is in fact a trance remix lol.

Elsewhere, Robin Gunthrie (of the Cocteau Twins) did this stunning remix of 'Flowers Bloom' by Mandalay.


Mandalay are a good band to check out, consisting of my other favourite vocalist Nicola Hitchcock and crystal clear producer Saul Freeman, both amazing solo artists in their own rights too.

Bands like Aythis, Dargaard, Abandoned Toys, Arcana, and Niyaz all use ethereal, dark vocals exquisitely.
