Suno Deko is the experimental pop project of Brooklyn-based poet and musician David Courtright. Inspired by his previous work in India, the artist has been focusing on vulnerability, living openly with love, fear, and free expression and bringing emotional touches to masculinity. His work, while still new to the world, has been hitting emotional heartstrings with his first few singles, and we see a lot of future for the extraordinary talent.
We got a chance to get a playlist with the up-and-coming talent, and the results showcase his major influences in the songwriting and composition world.
On the playlist, he explained:
This playlist is a collection of friends and idols whose music has had a huge impact on my life. It begins with "The Sea as It Glides," by Julie Byrne, which was written in a cabin outside of Jackson, WY when we were on tour together a few years ago. I've been obsessed with Weyes Blood's latest record, so I included a track from that and her collaboration with Perfume Genius on his record (another huuuge influence/obsession of mine). "Floe" by Philip Glass was a major inspiration for the blasting exuberance of the end of "Swan Song." Also couldn't in good conscience make a playlist without Kate Bush. Thanks and enjoy!
