Dazzling with a glistening and hypnotic dream-pop allure, “RAD I/O” is a memorable track from Taipei, the project of Finnish artist Henrik Sundström. Impressing prior with the releases “Flashback Man” and “The Birds,” Sundström continues to refine his deeply atmospheric, hypnotic take on dreamy pop with “RAD I/O.” Cooing vocals and ruminating rhythms drive to glitzy synth flourishes past the first minute, the understated rhythmic-forward sections contrasting beautifully with the unabashed synth-laden enthusiasm, which takes off after the two-minute mark and enjoyably leads until the track’s conclusion. “RAD I/O” is another melodic, blissful soundscape on display from Sundström’s Taipei project.
“RAD I/O” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2021’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop.
