With a mellow and polished alternative pop sound, this mid-tempo piano-driven single from Trevor Myall entitled All The Things might remind you a bit of Mumford & Sons, or even Sam Smith. The engaging finish is full of swirling cinematic energy and a prominent 4-count, while a patient but unyielding dynamic build creates a nice sense of anticipation.
A few tracks of falsetto-driven vocal embellishments soon grow into a massive chorus, layers of effect, and a huge shift in foundation - from a few notes on the piano, to a full band affair. However, the semantic core of this ballad is the simple urge to elevate the object of one’s affection to mythical status, and is thus an ode to love itself, and the timeless power of attraction.
