Pontiak: Second Sun/Beach

Into zoning out for a while?

"Second Sun" and "Beach" are two songs from Pontiak's latest album, Living, and they pull drear, folk and bemusement into a rather engrossing six or so minutes. "Beach" is a more traditional segment of the medley, (an acoustic guitar and a bottomless voice), though I like that the video sticks to a single guitar player for the duration of the song. "Second Sun" feels like it's found in nature, almost like it's too random and pure to be man-made. Perfect grouping for a grey day.
