Modern nineties sounds for the fall.
Sways is a mixtape for the fall. 🍂
The dream of the nineties is alive in it.
It’s that crisp sound. The one that bounces or shimmers. The one that sways between something baggy and bright to something crunchy and grungy.
Sways is a collection of modern songs that capture this sound counterbalanced with the songs from the nineties that invented it.
To sway is to come and go, to lean or careen, to wave or waver. It is to influence or impress, to work on. It is to pulsate, fluctuate, or oscillate.
To sway is to rock. To sway is to roll.
