The smooth nature of “Faded” is reminiscent of the warm breeze that slips between your hair on a summer night – and the reason I think of summer when I hear this is thanks to the overall warmth the track radiates.

We’re seamlessly hooked by Matt’s vocals paired with his gripping songwriting throughout “Faded”. The manner in which he spills his soul on the track makes it easy to feel what he’s going through which makes his lyrics all the more relatable. And as a sucker for drums, of course I’m not about to neglect to mention the absolutely sublime rhythm section that’s brought to life by the crackling rim shot.
