WMD is the solo electronic music project of Michael Erickson. The Seattle-based musician creates a unique low-key blend of chillstep and ambient music mixing lush synth pads with minimalist electric guitar lines. Melancholy is never out of reach in this music, and Erickson seems to understand the feeling well, perhaps informed by the overcast skies of the Northwest. But despite the prevalence of darker textures, WMD tracks sooth the listener with a feeling of nostalgic acceptance whilst simultaneously towing a sense of the new.
