The opening track of the Pegboard Nerds’ fifth EP, Nerds By Nature, “Speed Of Light” surfaced as an ethereal soundscape, atmospheric introduction to an EP that would explore a variety of different genres, ranging from dubstep to house music. Nine months later, the opener has received a sequel.
Titled “Speed Of Light (Pt. 2),” the follow up track materializes as the original’s hip-hop oriented cousin, adopting a mellow guitar melody that complements vocals laid by the track’s featured artists: Taylor Bennett, Chance The Rapper’s younger brother, and Indianapolis based hip-hop artist, Skylr. “Speed Of Light (Pt. 2)’s” different aesthetic renders the sequel a distinct yet complementary extension of the blissful original.
