Smooth vibes pour through in calming waves throughout this classic, nostalgic yet crisp and refreshing new single from Virginia’s The Acorns.
Bringing together a uniquely crafted soundscape, with reverb-kissed layers of guitar alongside an upfront hip hop rhythm, the track goes on to match this dreamlike aura with an equally delicate yet confident and rhythmically addictive vocal line.
Everything works beautifully as one within the walls of the track. The voice unites with the music, and every detail, additional voice or flicker of melody, joins forces with the underlying rhythm in a gorgeously hypnotic way.
Keeping the natural energy and good vibes of the genre alive and well, with a trip hop or jazz-café core yet a faultless vocal outpouring to inject concept and intention, Paved Red is a timeless new track, with a clear air of carefree, uninhibited artistry about it.
Coming in at barely past the two-minute mark, the track hits with subtle yet worthy impact thanks to its own brightness and strength of set-up. You only need to hear this once to become wrapped up in its energy and poetic story-telling. Every time afterwards is an easy and comforting, additional blessing. Hopefully there’s more music on the way.
