Soundscapes and pad synths float around a singer questionings lyrics displayed in a very existential way. The soft thud of a kick drum joins as the instrumentation joins in a crescendo up to a comfortable listening level. The lyrics are all about going with the flow and the music is a fitting representation of this. It’s a chill back to the grind Monday track that has me in a daydream. Check it out below and learn more about Transit Club. Later in the track the guitar panning gets interesting so listen for that if you dig cool production styles.

ARTIST BIO & PITCH
Transit Club is a Swedish-Canadian alt-pop music collective based out of Stockholm, Sweden.
With his heart stuck somewhere between Ottawa and Stockholm, Canadian-born frontman and public transit enthusiast, Steve Motion, blends the sensitive songwriting and warm personalities of Justin Vernon, Lionel Richie, Chris Martin, and Joni Mitchell with an added touch of 21st century public transit urgency.
With Olle Ahlsson (Guitars), Frej Forsman (Keys), Agnes Jensen (Vocals/Percussion) Niklas Levedahl (Bass) and Olle Ronach (Drums) completing the lineup, the band’s live sets are known to be fun and electrically unifying sing-along symphonies. Transit Club took Obaren, Stockholm by storm with a jam-packed enthusiastic audience for their Garden 🍁release party in November 2018. They also supported E.B. The Younger (Eric from Midlake’s solo project) at Nalen, Stockholm, in April 2019.
Transit Club’s music is as spontaneously playful as it is impulsively emotional.
Debut singles ‘Garden’🍁and ‘Pretend’💛are warm, hopeful, melancholic. ‘Garden’ 🍁immediately gained traction when it was added to Spotify Seasonal Editorial Playlist, currently called softhöst (soft autumn), soundtracking listeners’ emotions no matter the time of year.
Single #3, ‘Bells’ 🔔dropped September 20th 2019 and was added to Spotify Editorial Playlist ‘New Music Friday Sweden’, as well as the Swedish Radio Playlist “Musikguiden i P3: Bäst just nu” (Best right now).
