Breezy guitar riffs interlace between mellow vocals on Gabe Lavine’s debut single, “Sunsets.” It’s a remarkable take on 80s synth pop, oozing influences of The Cure and modern artists like TOPS and Jay Som. Lavine played and recorded every track on the song, his musicality coming to full force in the melancholic bridge.
The beat is driven by jangly synth, and Lavine added, “I wanted to make a song that feels like driving towards a sunset.” Shimmering and hazy, Lavine leaves us nostalgic, as his wistful lyrics hone in on simpler times, being present with your friends, and soaking in the sunsets while they’re good.
