Following last week’s launch of his new website, Porter Robinson has revealed the video for his latest single, “Something Comforting” (Mom+Pop). The video, directed by Chris Muir & Carlos Lopez Estrada, had its premiere on YouTube yesterday. To the delight of all that were in attendance, Porter himself joined the 14k supporters to watch “Something Comforting” go live. The video has quickly grown in popularity, exceeding 100k views and receiving placement on YouTube’s Video Hotlist.
“Something Comforting” was labeled “gorgeous” by Stereogum and Fader said it, “…draws a bold, glittering line underneath his comeback: it starts off with frosty synth strings straight out of the map screen of a 32-bit RPG, and expands into the affecting pop songwriting the Robinson project is known for.” E! included the track in their “The mixtapE” and Uproxx put it in their “All The Best New Indie Music This Week” list. The single has amassed 4.6 million streams world-wide and saw support from both Apple Music and Spotify. Watch “Something Comforting” here:
A driving triumph of swirling conversation between melancholic reflection and ecstatic euphoria, “Something Comforting” was the second hint of what is to come on Porter’s forthcoming album Nurture. Previously, Porter dropped “Get Your Wish” which Pitchfork described as “a joyful return … one that expands the scope of his music while bringing him back down to earth.” Following its release, #PorterRobinson and #GetYourWish trended at #6 on Twitter and #11 respectively and it has amassed 15 Million+ Global Streams.
Porter Robinson’s debut studio album ‘Worlds’ ranks as one of Billboard’s best dance albums of the decade, his track ‘Shelter’ with Madeon went RIAA Certified Gold, he’s amassed over 1.3 billion global streams and in 2019 started and sold out his own 2-day ‘Second Sky Festival’ with a capacity of 30k fans.
“Get Your Wish” is a joyful return for Robinson, one that expands the scope of his music while bringing him back down to earth.” Pitchfork
“The first offering from Porter Robinson’s sophomore album Nurture, titled ‘Get Your Wish,’ is the sound of six years of writers block splitting open and making way for boundless possibility.” Fader
“Porter Robinson is no stranger to reinvention, moving from raging dubstep on his 2011 record Spitfire to the synth-heavy, indie-electro choral pop of 2014’s Worlds. With ‘Get Your Wish,’ the lead single off his upcoming effort Nurture, he’s done it again. Over nature samples and distorted vocals, the erstwhile Skrillex protégé addresses dark personal issues like his depression and rediscovering his passion for music.” Entertainment Weekly
“’Get Your Wish,’ picks back up where Worlds left off, spiraling into a brightly colored synth-pop realm speckled with classically informed strings and piano.” Stereogum
“’Get Your Wish’ features the musician’s signature off-kilter samples mixed into an energetic dance-ready anthem.” Uproxx
“The dreamy new track from Porter Robinson is transportive and ethereal, welcoming listeners into the young producer’s new realm of music. “Something Comforting” leads listeners through a journey of sonic exploration, from a soft and sweet introduction into a euphoric and exciting build-up. After almost five minutes, the song ends with captivating and careful piano notes that almost feel like a lullaby.” Dujour
