Seance Crasher – “Back in Time”


An intimate synth-pop crooner from Seance Crasher, “Back in Time” engrosses with its nocturnal yearning and nostalgic production. Touting a commanding vocal presence and knack for melodic yet atmospheric songwriting, Portland-based artist Kevin Rafn fronts the project, alongside Lia Gist and Scott Harlan. The spoken-word temptations and melancholic synth pulsations, past the three-minute mark, craft a hypnotically engrossing feel with a throwback new-wave quality. “Wish we could go back in time,” the vocals yearn, aesthetically reminiscent of Twin Shadow. “Back in Time” captivates with its thoroughly moody production and genuine vocal yearning.

“Back in Time” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2021’ Spotify playlist.
