A gently pulsing synth and lush piano additives complement tender vocals throughout the engaging “These Things,” a recent track from Hasten Mercy, the project of Michael Baker (member of the band Head Fake). The track comes via the new EP of the same name, showing an enjoyable fusion of synth-pop and singer/songwriter appeal. The Toronto-born Baker shows intriguing atmosphere throughout “These Things,” lyrically contemplating afternoon walks and spontaneity amidst buzzing synth-laden ruminations, expanding with enjoyable effervescence upon the piano additions. “These Things” is a satisfying, well-produced output from Hasten Mercy.
“”These Things” and other memorable tracks from September can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2021’ Spotify playlist.
