Softly bringing together the emotion of soul music & the smoothness of RnB, this is a fairly minimalist, dreamlike song that lays its melody, ambiance, and sentiment before you in a subtle yet captivating way.
The production is superb & the result is a gorgeously nostalgic offering that comes soaked in a certain artistic freshness. A beautiful piece of music with some stunning vocals.
The hook has a simple melody & concept that is repeated just enough times to really make it sink in. The increasing tension or passion within the verses draws your focus elsewhere, but you always come back to that moment, that connecting thread.
The music builds from something quite mellow into something that is much more emotionally loaded & passionate – complete with chaotic drums & a freely wandering guitar solo.
The movement of this single has a fairly classic feel to it, almost like a long lost hit from yesteryear, the sort that can easily be rediscovered & reintegrated into your modern day playlist.
The RnB style melody that plays the part of a verse section adds a new dynamic, the instrumental breaks are well placed, and without question, you only need to hear the single once to remember it indefinitely.
Offering a fresh look at indie rock, with a country or blues-rock twang, superb story telling & a fresh concept, among other things – this release is brilliant. Segio Gaetani exerts his artistic drive in a way that satisfies on a number of levels.
The sound is sublime, the playing is clever, intricate yet not overly flashy & far from noisy. The lyrics tell a story of love in some new, unexpected way, and this is the final piece of the puzzle.
This is something really special, particularly for hip hop or conscious rap fans. The music has the delicacy of carefully crafted, creative trip-hop, and Bluff as a performer & rapper works hard to paint a clear picture for you, and to open your mind.
The structure of the song is unexpected, which makes it appear as quite fresh, and this is definitely one of the best vocal performances so far from PMKS, in my opinion. At over five minutes long the creative drive has been met here with a distinct awareness of how to craft a song.
Toots has a certain sound and style that makes the track feel believable, it demands that you listen – this confidence & flow pulls you in, and once you’re involved, every lyric works hard to keep you there.
The past has the power to calm us, and creativity, new artistic ideas, have the power to motivate. It’s entirely up to you what you take away from this music, but it’s undoubtedly the sort that will be right at home in the long term playlist.
