Smooth jazz-ballad vibes start up the piano-led and increasingly soulful new arrangement from rapper and artist AMFG.
Offering alluring melodies, engaging rhythms, seductive guitar layers and unmistakable degrees of personality in both vocal tone and musicality, Little Things feels aptly contemporary yet refreshingly thoughtful, as it openly contemplates the world and the very nature of intimacy and love.
Poetically interesting yet melodically simplistic enough to connect with a broader audience, Little Things makes fine use of a plethora of different musical approaches and genres. From these soul and jazz flavors in the instrumental, to the catchy pop and dancehall edge of the hook, through the grittier rap verses where the details really pour through, the song is relatable, relevant, and original, all at once.
It’s the subtle traits that help Little Things achieve this, and that fact cleverly reinforces the very sentiments of the subject matter – an appreciation for the little things; gratitude and connection on a more personal level.
A welcomed twist on the current pop and hip hop landscape, with just enough familiarity to reach out further than the alternative scene. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes AMFG in the coming months and years.
