Sonder is uniquely it's own entity all the while paying homage to the genre it sits so confidently within. Such unabashed embrace of a style is hard to come by, but add the fact that Sonder is in fact a debut record, and you've got yourself one hell of a promising horizon for Widespell . But even within the EP, each individual song sits upon it's own respective continent of sound (Now/It's Nashville).
“Originally, this was nothing more than a creative outlet for myself,” Widener explains of the project. “Shortly after jamming on several ideas, it started pulling me into an avenue I’ve never tapped into. I then took these ideas into Eugenia Hall in Nashville where I allowed them to breathe and take shape for a single week. ‘ Anyone ’ was the first of the tunes to reveal itself and it became the reference point for the vibe of the EP.” Laid-back, minimalist groove, it’s like a cool drink of water on a steamy day, or a streak of soothing color on a crisp, white canvas–totally refreshing (East of 8th).
