If you don’t get goosebumps from listening to this song then you’re probably not human. The vocals sound like a lo-fi lullaby backed by nothing but a piano that sounds like it’s being played in the distance. Leaving space between these two elements for your mind to weave itself into the parts of the song.
The song suddenly explodes into a massive collection of synths when you least expect it. It feels like it’s throwing you out of this quiet little world it created around you at the beginning and putting you into this colorful masterpiece of golden fireworks all around you. That only lasts a few seconds and you’re brought back to this isolated sound that you are introduced to the song with.
