A few years back, I was on a boat ride for someone’s birthday. A girl had scribbled on my arm, there was a paper crown on my head and I’d had lots to drink. There’s something about Dyan Valdes’ “Fade Away” that takes me there. The song is deceptively simple: drum machine, synths and a tender vocal, but it takes real craft to build a strong vessel. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by what’s going on in the world, “Fade Away” is the perfect yacht (rock) to dream on.
