In a just universe, the latest jam by Swedish EDM mastermind Skogsrå would be in heavy rotation on Top 40 radio, blinking out of the morass of braindead tunes like a prism. It grabs your attention that quickly with its easygoing rhythm and a vocal hook that buries itself deep within your cerebellum, feeding you little jolts of joy every time you remember a line or a melody as you go about your day. It would also be a fitting tribute to the person that Skogsrå wrote the song about, as for all its ebullience, “Out Of Time” is actually a lament about losing a loved one. That he was able to wrench something joyful out of something so painful only endears me to the song more.
