A masterful effort from the young producer, “Rumours” is thoughtful yet minimal in its approach. Relaxed, lo-fi production with integrated hints of electronica are the soft bedrock to this release; rolling percussion with lilting piano melodies at hand to lift the track. A beautifully controlled performance from Lontalius, his vocals mirror the serenity that “Rumours” exudes.
Sharing his sentiments on the new track, Sonn stated: “Rumours is about having a fresh start and leaving rumours behind you. I wanted to create something that is upbeat, freeing and sounds nostalgic, something to drive to.”
With his output crossing genres and borders alike, Sonn continues his steady reign as being one of the go-to producers for a vast crop of emerging talent; a frequent collaborator with the likes of Ayelle and Nakala. A loyal fanbase the world over that has seen him garner near 500K monthly Spotify listeners speaks to the gravitas he commands while yet to reach the peak of his powers.
With a forthcoming EP on the horizon, Sonn is poised to be one of the most exciting discoveries this year.
