Earlier this year, Sonder unveiled their breakout EP, Into. The trio composed of producers Dpat and Atu alongside lead singer Brent Faiyaz craft a refreshing sound in the current renaissance of R&B. The lead single from the project, titled “Too Fast,” recently received a cinematic set of visuals directed by Noah Lee which follow a young Faiyaz (played by Amir Legrone) as he soul searches across the plains. The video explores the circle of life in a beautifully-executed video with Faiyaz’s heart on his sleeve—literally. With a handful of sold-out shows already under their belt, expect Sonder to continue to grow in the near future.
