There’s so much personality & emotion in the performance as the song moves from the gentler, almost whispered verses, to the much more bold sounding hook.
It’s a beautiful song, a little retro, rhythmic, hopeful, enjoyable in itself, but also – it’s inspiring, when you really break it down & pay attention.
The artistry of the craft seems to come before the need to label it or to fit in with any particular genre or group. It’s very easy to enjoy.
An immensely atmospheric & soothing piece of music that you can easily listen back to again & again & still feel the same ethereal freedom.
Sometimes a good song is all that’s needed; nothing fancy or over the top to enhance the ideas – just the song, and a performance that means something.
The heart of the genre is maintained & celebrated, bringing a sense of realness. The sound has certain collective qualities that further the authenticity.
There’s passion & power to it, bringing the production alive, showcasing variety & creative freedom as well us undeniable precision & skill.
The sound evolves into something familiar, the hook dances around you, the leading vocal presents a confident, more than capable lyricist & performer.
The sound is big, leaning partly towards the distorted world of indie rock, partly towards a more electronic, even reggae influenced edge.
Every element assists the music & emotion as they evolve. The voice rises in passion, the instrumentation intensifies, the lyrics become upfront & direct.
The simplicity works really well, the production has a retro crackle about it that assists in building those classic vibes & the melody hits with impact.
The leading riff & melody are the sort that have you hanging on for dear life yet listening back at every opportunity. Strangely familiar & thrilling.
