It’s a slow burn, with a confident simplicity and a very natural vocal take; the effect is that when the beat kicks in, and with every added element, the emotion is palpable. The entire production oozes less-is-more messaging: that angelic voice, the starry-eyed lyricism, and the long whole notes on the Wurlitzer.
This butter-smooth love-jam is easy on the ears, and will transport you, if only for a moment, to the place we all deserve to be: next to the one we love. By candlelight.
