Alden Groves knows how to craft something that washes over you like a wave of colour but impresses and provokes thought in the same instance. Sway is something of a creative masterpiece for this genre right now.
This whole track utilizes both theme and language to build something consistently relevant and interesting – whilst also holding onto that necessary style and confidence to keep it rooted amidst today’s sound.
