    This song is one of my absolutes favorites at the moment! It sounds very calm and mysterious at first, but then transforms into a really enjoyable chorus that's slightly more upbeat. Another thing I like about this song in particular is that the instrumental is very light and simple which adds to its overall addictive effect.
