Piano-led simplicity lays bare a ballad-like setting, as songwriter and artist Peace Simon delivers a heartfelt ode to spirituality.
Emerging initially as a contemporary love song of doubled vocals and rising melodic brightness, When I See You originally came about as a conversation with our protagonist’s own spiritual side – the idea being to embrace it and follow its guidance. In reality, the track doubles up as one of intimacy and gratitude, making it easy for all the more listeners to relate.
Building up slowly, with a retro pop rhythm and long-form verses, When I See You resolves well for its hook, injecting a passionate rise and some tripped production to reinforce this emotional peak. It’s a unique soundscape backed by a familiar structuring and chord pattern, elevated once again by the recognizable tone and character of the leading voice.
Openly vulnerable, expressive and grateful for the connections of the present moment, When I See You introduces Peace Simon on a definite high. It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes him in the coming months.
Also a fine artist, the cover image from the single was taken from this short video from 2018. Find Peace Simon on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok & YouTube or visit the Website.
