Faster Than Light – “Charm Squad”


Channeling a nostalgic balance of understated contemplation and dazed psych-rock, “Charm Squad” is a newly released track from Faster Than Light, a music project based in Brooklyn, NY.

Nate Jasensky’s deep, debonair vocal presence exudes a calming presence alongside brighter keys. The two-minute turn excels into a trippy, slowed-down guitar line amidst underlying mystique-filled acoustics; the vocals fade here, as the gently absorbing soundscape takes hold. “Charm Squad” is a memorable showing from Faster Than Light, releasing ahead of their upcoming album, Banner Year.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2023’ Spotify playlist.
