I was captivated by the intimacy of stay friends. Tony and Saenabi have an emotional back and forth against an acoustic guitar backdrop before things build with the classical twist of strings. The track really does feel like a heart to heart that, with reluctance to end, has carried on into the early hours of the morning.

Tony was born in LA and is now based in Brooklyn, New York. He also performs alongside Saenabi as part of the electro pop SET+VOI, along with EDM producer Vyzta.
