Toronto was just hit with an unseasonable cold snap, so “Sunset Theme” from Teen Daze comes as something of a relief. The Vancouver producer's newest track is gauzy dose of retro-funk synths and swooning vocal stabs, a warm tidal pool under the song's slowly rising tide.
“'Sunset Theme' is my latest ode to summer.” Teen Daze writes over email. “I spent a lot of 2015 travelling through some pretty tropical locations, and I actually avoided winter for most of the year. I got home right as the rainy fall season hit here in the Pacific Northwest, and I couldn't help but dream of all those incredible sunny, summery locations that I got to spend most of my year in. The goal with this song was to try and capture that feeling, and hopefully create a nice soundtrack for summer 2016.”
