I’ve become enamoured with dev soter’s sound over the past year or so with the young musician managing to create anthems that make you feel like you’re experiencing a warm hug. He takes indie sensibilities from the early 2000’s, with Vampire Weekend being a prime example, before infusing it with a contemporary alternative pop production that makes his sound so undeniably fresh but simultaneously familiar. It’s the type of music that’s perfect for walking around in the glorious summer heat on your day off, but also for late night walks experience the eery silence the world has to offer.
His latest track TIME OF DAY was specifically designed for those warm days by the beach where you do nothing but bathe in the shimmering sun’s rays. A scintillating guitar leads the production with the melody it strings together warmly wrapping itself around you in a loving embrace, all whilst a looping percussion section clashes with it in a glorious moment of juxtaposed euphony. Then soter’s vocals come into play and, as per usual, they’re filled with an unrivalled amount of charisma that you’d expect to see from a seasoned performer who’s been doing this for decades. Add any dev soter track to your future summer playlists and you’ll be in for on balmy and lush summer experience.
