STVN is a team favorite on Unheard Gems. His Lo-fi Pop aesthetics and sentimental lyrics always make for a dream pairing.
His single “Rollerblades” is a sugary sweet love song. There is something nostalgic about the way this track sounds. STVN has tapped into something similar to COIN and LANY with these almost fuzzy dreamland-sounding songs but brings his own flair of almost RnB type vocal flows. I love the play on “rolling with you” with the rollerblade theme and rolling with the person you want to surround yourself with.
This is your classic indie movie fawning for someone type song, the way that life can feel so simple yet in those moments you find the most fulfillment.
“This song is about missing someone you hold dear, and how they make you a better person when you're with them!” - STVN
