This is a velvety mix, with a beautiful, backbeat-heavy ambient drum pocket, used judiciously behind a warm and fuzzy vocal performance from SITA. The vibe here feels like the visceral reanimation of a treasured memory, coupled with a reminder to appreciate the present.
The songwriting is effortless, juxtaposing a lilted melody with an intermittent and atmospheric drum groove. You might not notice the consistent lyrical tone, but the theme seems to be acceptance of the unknown as a place where life can be lived to its fullest:
Steelings is the ambient-folk side project of artists SITA and Jacob Steele based in Nashville. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
