Last month, Toronto artist sunsetto closed out the summer in style with the effortlessly cool “on the side.” The track was a “fun and light” look at falling in love, sunsetto using his smooth songwriting skills to dismantle the idea of possession or ownership in such situations. With “cuffing season” underway, the track could not be more relevant. Even though sunsetto is fine with keeping things casual, he is also fine with speeding things up, as we hear on his new single “too fast.”
Containing lively beats, catchy rhythms, and enticing lyrics, “too fast” encourages those in new relationships to lose their inhibitions. With dynamic vocals that showcase his range, sunsetto sings, “Probably should be cautious / But you make it hard to do,” wondering if he should give in to his feelings. In the end, he shares, “You make me wanna go too fast / Too fast / I don’t think I can hold back,” naturally letting the relationship unfold. You can check it out in the video below, which was directed by sunsetto’s main visual collaborators, Griffin O’Toole and moosecanfly.
About the single, sunsetto reveals,
“‘Too Fast’ was inspired by the feeling of entering a new relationship and not wanting to take things slow because the vibe is so good. I wrote the song with no music, I was just hitting my chest on a voice memo and Lenno (producer) built the track around that.”
You can listen to “too fast” on platforms like SoundCloud, Spotify, and Apple Music.
