future-soul singer sunni colón crafts the perfect end of summer soundtrack on ‘satin psicodelic’

August 31, 2018

I’m a sucker for the cusps of seasons. When hot summer nights recede into cool fall mornings. The latest EP from singer and songwriter Sunni Colón is the musical equivalent of the end of summer. It’s chilled out but still sizzles. It’s all satin sheets and frozen drinks. It’s the soundtrack to those hazy nights you can only remember in snapshots, but you wouldn’t have it any other way.

His sound is full of 70’s soul vibes mixed with electronic flourishes that wash in and out beneath his reverb-soaked voice. Satin Psicodelic is the sort of record whose spaced out sounds mask a world of detail and texture. It’s as much a soundtrack to summer nights on the beach as it is distant galaxies. Standouts like “Technicolor” and “Strands of the Future” highlight this duality, keeping a dream-like pulse under the satin sounds. It’s the perfect end-of-summer soundtrack.
