I was struggling a lot figuring out which song I wanted to follow up ‘My God Has a Telephone’ because I didn’t want to drastically change the mood. On the other hand I have been looking for an opportunity to include Sonder or Brett Faiyaz on this playlist because they became such a integral part of my music life. Their song Too Fast was featured on the promo for season 2 of Atlanta, which spiked their listeners on all platforms.
Their album ‘Into’ is in my top albums of 2017 and it is all because the combination of the music and Brett’s voice is so sensitive, sad, emotional and longing in the most perfect way. You can’t help but get lost in your thoughts with his voice in the background.
In a way it feels futuristic, but nostalgic at the same time.
