Featuring gorgeous organic guitar work from producer Eric Matthys, Wendy Lucas’ new single is one that breathes poetic and reflective calm into the room with natural beauty.
Leading with breathy, soulful vocals, and a deeply contemplative, hopeful manner of writing, the song keeps things simple and intimate throughout. The arrangement is fairly minimalist – just a couple of vocal layers, a reverb-kissed guitar lead – impressive in its own freely expressive way with the back and forth chord progression. This easy-going aura is further reflected in the imagery and optimism of the writing – and indeed through Wendy’s softly expressive, captivating and smooth vocal line.
A beautifully written song, with a refreshing presentation – particularly considering the weight and multi-layered energy of most modern pop releases. The subtle touches of natural detail and sound design help finish the whole thing off as a blissfully soothing ambiance. An easy addition to the playlist.
