Even if you aren’t familiar with SŸDE and their lightly energetic, sweetly melodic, and tribally rhythmic indie-electronic vibes, then there’s still a pretty good chance you’ve heard their massive first single “Orbit” somewhere over the past year. The duo composed of Will and Mitch, two friendly 18-year-olds out of Melbourne, Australia experienced a rare meteoric rise thanks to strong support from Spotify for their undeniable debut hit single in the form of heavy rotation on numerous official playlists. Now faced with the daunting task of following up with a sophomore track, they’ve partnered up with NYC’s Olivia Reid for “Above The Clouds” which showcases a laid back, sing-songy folk-influenced sound. It’s without a doubt SŸDE though, most noticeably in the percussion and guitar work. “Above The Clouds” is a future folk-pop anthem for Generation Z’s increasingly worldly youth. It’s exciting to see these young musicians getting to share their talent with the world, and I can’t wait for more music from them, hopefully soon.
