Yesterday, Atlanta songwriter Suno Deko—whose Thrown Color EP drops July 22nd—contributed to our What We’re Reading column, picking some new age-y texts and poetry books. Today, he’s unveiled a new song from that release. Like “Bluets” before it, the EP’s title track is the sort of expressive art-rock you’d expect out of a dude who reads Leaves of Grass in the backseat of his Prius while driving across America. With twinkly guitars, a synth fade in, and far off-sounding bells, “Thrown Color” approaches something resembling classic dream-pop, and the intermittent guitar shredding doesn’t feel so much like bravado or an affirmation of his technical skill; it feels more like a desire to bend this particular ethereal aesthetic as far as it can go without breaking.
