The first time I heard this I revisited the track more than 7 times and not just because I wanted to, the arrangement of the drums on "Someone Like You" have a special kind of allure that I can't put my finger on.

Drumtap's meticulous use of reverb definitely has something to do with it since the manipulated perception of space contributes to their magnetism. Layered over these drums you'll also find the most airy of pads, and SHELLS's dreamy vocals make the track so much more memorable with a hook that'll stick around in your head for hours.
