Super Flat – “Time”


Buzzing synths and a scorching guitar lead open “Time” in gripping, nostalgic form. The track shows a consuming balance between dreamy retrospection and thunderous rock theatrics, a success from Super Flat, a project based out of Knoxville, Tennessee. Following an engaging introduction, the hook at 01:08 dazzles with effervescent synth arpeggios, bursting guitars, and vibrant vocals. “Time” shows great, climactic production alongside the artist’s admiration for dreamy synths and punchy percussion. Super Flat is definitely a project I’m looking forward to hearing more from.

Regarding the track, the artist writes: “The main theme consists of relationships that try to survive only by how much time they have, even though the inevitable is coming and both parties know it. I love washy synths, cutting guitars, and punchy drums in a shuffle; thus this track was born.”

“Time” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop.
