The unmistakable sound of Sweden’s Maini Sorri returns this month, delivering a heartfelt ode to love and the beauty of the world; complete with an aptly seasonal and wonderfully shot video to accompany.
Leading with strength of melody and those quickly recognisable vocals, Tomorrow follows a simple progression of piano, bass and rhythm for the most part. There’s a lightness to this arrangement, so your focus is on the short lines of poetry that pave the way throughout.
Celebrating unity and the meaning that oneness and love can gift our lives, Tomorrow looks forward with optimism – a certain hope that the future will bring togetherness, for individuals and for all.
There’s positivity in every line but one, the exception being a subtle dismay regarding the pain of fighting and hatred, before we get a return to the brightness of love as beautiful and life as meaningful when it’s shared.
Possibly Maini’s most catchy or memorable melody yet, Tomorrow moves along and resolves gorgeously, naturally connecting and reinforcing the inspiring sentiments at the heart of the writing.
