Blissful delicacy and positive energy pour through in waves of warmth for this brand new, aptly-titled single from Elias Salbu.
Bringing together softness of soundscape, organic and acoustic elements, with a gently raspy, expressive yet nearly whispered vocal lead, the song goes on to lay out the familiar and comforting imagery of the summer-time. Everything from the sights, sounds and feelings emerges, and the casual yet colourful soundscape feeds into this presentation beautifully.
Not just leading with that blissful overall mood – perfectly well-suited to accompany relaxing with friends as the sun sits high above – the song is really well written, in terms of what’s effective in pop and mainstream music. The verses deliver a certain simplicity and lightness, an engaging rhythm, and the hook brightens things up to resolve and uplift as it declares the universal fact that some things just taste better in the summer.
Beautifully done, professionally and cleverly crafted, with a broadly appealing set-up that’s likely to continue to draw interest as a unique style and approach throughout Salbu’s future releases.
Sit back, relax, and appreciate the little blessings that life brings about.
