sunsetto elaborates on the new single: “I wrote the song in LA last November about coping mechanisms that formed from seemingly harmless fun with partying but that led to some important conversations and changes in my life. The song is disguised as an upbeat catchy pop anthem but, at its core, is a sobering conversation between two people. Nobody is perfect, and we’re not all lucky enough to have someone in our life that cares enough to tell us we need to make a change.”
The accompanying video was shot in Nova Scotia, Canada. With his beautiful childhood landscape as a backdrop, sunsetto uses his own reflection to find comfort.
sunsetto (aka Kyle Mischiek) is a Toronto-based singer, songwriter and producer. Skating past genre lines and assembling a nocturnal mosaic of R&B, alternative and pop, his evocative vocals dip in and out of hazy loops, stoned D.I.Y. beats, and flourishes of cinematic production beamed out of his personal studio yet meant for mass transmission.
During 2020, he shared a snippet of his single, “don’t leave,” on Instagram and organically amassed hundreds of thousands of streams. He followed up the initial viral buzz with two more singles, “good connection” and “downtown,” and is continuing to roll out a series of new tracks as he heads towards his forthcoming debut EP.
