During times as divisive as these, it’s easy to forget that we are all human, living together, not apart. Luckily for us, Mark Ambuter has created Love is Everywhere to remind us all of that.
There’s an undeniable call and response relationship between Danise’s voice and the music, which really helps the listener appreciate just how talented the band behind this epic voice really is.
The religious aspect runs deep within these songs and so for those who want to feel a connection to something greater than themselves, this EP offers a modern and ultimately very heartfelt take on faith and dedication to a higher power.
The song’s very concept, its central idea, is one that promotes calmness and well being – a sense of living in the present and being at piece is highlighted in everything from the lyrics to the music to the performances.
There’s an inherent connection between the voice and the words expressed by it, which seems like a simple touch but it’s something often lacking in modern pop – it’s also something that can’t really effectively be faked.
There’s plenty of room in modern music for songwriters who put so much of themselves into their work – and who manage to maintain a clear and likable thread of individuality at the same time. Love, Future You is a joy to listen to in full.
This entire EP is a simple joy, inspiring songwriting with a cheerful outlook and an undertone of truthfulness that’s well worth appreciating.
David SweetLow brings together a gentle folk sound & a well-traveled perspective on this single Lean On Me. There’s an immediately delicate warmth to the track, the acoustic guitar picking & SweetLow’s near-whispered, smooth & heartfelt vocals walk hand-in-hand.
How Do You Know Until You Know is a superb line, the melodic switch & the change to a major key – the sudden brightness, the freely meandering piano – everything about this moment shines beautifully.
Where the verses have more of an acoustically raw, singer-songwriter style about them, the hook section explodes into life as a multi-layered moment of strength and fire.
There’s an Enya-like feel to the presentation, the voice drives as if simply another instrument, so the collaboration just works. It sounds pleasant in itself, and should you choose to listen a little more intently – the concept reaches out to connect in a very pure and relatable way.
The melodic development – these long-form lines, the varying vocal rhythm – and the continuous flow of the acoustic guitar strumming, all makes for something that feels familiar but uncommon in the same instance. It also makes it feel very real – you get a genuine sense of honesty & endearing authenticity throughout.
