WMD is the ambient electronic project of Michael Erickson. The prolific electronic musician from the pacific northwest creates lush, airy songs thrumming with the power of melancholia, nostalgia, and the bliss and sorrow of relationships.
Erickson's music taps into a blend of chillwave, downtempo, and even post-rock. As daunting as that can sound, WMD lands somewhere between Tycho, Washed Out, and Baths in his deep, melodic production.
WMD's newest album, Reminisce was released in September of 2017. The hazy downtempo dive into nostalgia was inspired not only by Erickson's own past experiences, but also by the antique photographs he began collecting while writing the album.
