Airy Los Angeles singer Sunni Colón is touched by a love that goes beyond the surface in his new song, "Little Things." He coasts over the funky Kaytranada-produced track, crooning about his blossoming bond, and comparing the magnetic attraction between him and his muse to the power of the night sky's constellations. "It's the little things that matter, to me/ When you make me feel important/ When you make me feel like matter, pull me," he sings.
"When I first heard the chords on 'Little Things' I immediately grabbed my guitar and jammed out over it for about an hour,"Colón told The FADER over email. "A week later, l sat in my room with my electric guitar and began writing. The lyrics stem from mindfulness while living in this beautiful yet chaotic world. Around the time I wrote this song I dived pretty deep into Alan Watts and would only listen to him and play guitar."
He continued, "This quote by Alan Watts really stuck with me when I would get caught up into bullshit: 'I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.'”
"I’m having a conversation about love and appreciating the present moment, without fixating on the past or future. It’s the little things in life that we as humans sometimes take for granted, and I decided to create a song that enables us to see through a conscious lens."
