The grace of a gradual sonic build has never been lost on Lane 8, as “Sunday Song” ethereally elucidates. The second single from the This Never Happened label head’s incoming LP, Brightest Lights, “Sunday Song” starts with a vocal chop weaved among an ambient collection of chords. The effortless harmony of these elements sharpens in its focus as they slowly rise in synchronicity, giving lift to the splendorous number.
Synths arch in a limber manner, maintaining a metallically toned presence in the fluid body of the production. The sequel to the POLIÇA-assisted title track that Lane 8 shared on September 24, “Sunday Song” ebbs and flows for a serene four and a half minutes.
As sure as Brightest Lights looms on the horizon, slices of the LP’s sound will follow in the titular fashion of Lane 8’s debut album: little by little. Brightest Lights will arrive This Never Happened on January 10, 2020.
