“Sonder Asa” is claustrophobic, nervous, and at times, scary. At times, it’s also sadly gorgeous…almost heartbreakingly beautiful, as it traipses between elements and atmospheres you might find on a Boards of Canada and Explosions in The Sky release.
It’s a track that sounds about 5 times better really late at night, and roughly 10 times better when you’re playing it really loudly in the dark. If you’re drawn to electronic music expecting something to dance to, or something that’ll liven up a party, or even if you’re looking for songs in the traditional sense, then yes, you’ll probably be disappointed. But that would be missing the point.
