This song floats into view like a cloud rolling by; every sound, every note, feels soft and fluid. The drums have a wonderful live room sound and you can almost hear the cramped Brooklyn studio and the sounds of the city in the recesses of the mix.
Behind everything is a metronomic kick drum, a reverb-drenched wall of guitar, and a vocal honesty that works hand in hand with the lyrics to build the story about being ‘young and alive.’ With a bittersweet lift over the chorus that achieves a majestic and dreamy reminiscence, we are briefly flying above the boxy glass-and-brick skyline of Brighton Beach in someone else’s memory.
TOLEDO is the work of Daniel Alvarez de Toledo and Jordan Dunn-Pilz. This song is featured on our Rainy Day playlist.
