Exclusive: Snyder brings the ‘Thunda’ on new 51b feature
On “Thunda,” Snyder exemplifies the intoxicating appeal of a synergistic beat and vocal pairing. It’s not Snyder and 51b’s first encounter–and it shows. No stranger to Snyder’s discography, 51b has lent his fluid alto to a host of previously released productions, including “Petrified” and “One Plus One,” among others, and as on past singles, his contribution is complementary.
There’s a dark allure to “Thunda’s” deep house lean. A shadow-rinsed style of R&B that suits the crepuscular character of the cut, 51b’s vocal sits in velvety suspension atop the beat-driven arrangement. It’s an enthralling effort, one easy to get lost in, so much so that when “Thunda” glides to its smooth finish, listeners will predictably find themselves in a state of disbelief that five-minutes and 24 seconds could pass so imperceptibly.
This record began in 2016, I was experimenting with some new sounds and really created something I was excited about. There is something special about waiting to release a track for so long – this is something I really hope people enjoy and take time to listen to.-S
“Thunda” will not pervade digital streaming platforms until May 22, but streamers can listen to Snyder’s latest one day early, exclusively on Dancing Astronaut.
