16 Favorite Songs of 2016: #6 “Nightfall” – Anchor & Braille

Former Anberlin vocalist, Stephen Christian, AKA Anchor & Braille, went with a very chill synth-pop-meets-Washed Out sound on 2016’s Songs For The Late Night Drive Home, and I think it’s fits him perfectly. “Nightfall” would quickly emerge as my favorite track off the album, and then watching my then 4 yr. old dance along with such a care-free spirit to this song in the living room only added to my partiality. 

“Nightfall’ sounds like a track that would’ve hit number 91 on the Billboard singles chart in 1987, and that’s just how I like my pop music–catchy and captivating, but with a tinge too dark for the masses (The hits of The Cure being an obvious exception).
