Borders: “Rewind”

It’s hard for us to ignore a gorgeous synthscape here at Gas Mask Magazine. “Rewind” from Borders gives us all the nostalgia and catharsis we love from synthpop, with a little twist.

It’s shocking in all the right ways; in fact, I was surprised the first time I heard the vocals on this track. I was expecting something more straight-forward pop but this gave me a whole new vibe that I didn’t know I’d be yearning for. The trippy beat and excellently constructed soundscape made this song feel like it lived in two places at once. It seemed to capture the emotions of the past and the present all in one due to the interesting and unique melody line. Borders knows how to create originality!

Give the track a spin below and tell us what kind of vibe you get off of it. One thing’s for sure, I’ll be replaying this one all year. Tell us your thoughts on social media today: @gasmaskmagazine!
