Calling all fans of Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnald... This is for you. "Formerly Busy Places" is a marvelous example of beauty in motion particularly since the track progresses in such a stunning manner.

Even though the keys are the feature that stand out the most here, the airy elements draped around the keys honestly grabbed my attention. The emotions we're acquainted with on here are a blur as "Formerly Bust Places" sways between melancholic and pensive, and I love that especially since this somehow gives the track a nostalgic edge.
