Borg’s standout single “Nonstop” kicks off with a prelude which wouldn’t be out of place in a Neo-Noir soundtrack before the soundscape slowly infuses more contemporary stylistic appeal.
2019 saw an explosion of moody, evocative Pop. But Borg set themselves apart with plenty of distinction thanks to cinematic polished air to their soulful sound.
Nonstop is as nuanced as it is progressive. Expect plenty of captivatingly seamless evolutions in sound as the single slowly and tentatively builds in momentum and Borg’s vocal energy picks up plenty of unflinching arrestive conviction. The choral elements in the single are quite literally chilling. And Nonstop is as ethereal as modern Pop gets.
You can check out Borg’s single Nonstop along with the rest of their 2019 EP “Honest and Cool” via Spotify. It really is everything it says on the tin.
