We all know there aren’t really any guarantees in life, even the old adage about death and taxes doesn’t really ring true anymore, not if you get the right accountant at least. Yet over the last year and a bit, one thing we have found to be a certainty is that when Sivu releases a new song, it will sound fantastic.
As if to prove this point, the once upon a time call centre worker and Alphabet Bands number one artist to listen out for in 2014, is streaming his latest offering, “My Oh My” and yes, it is just gorgeous. So elegant an lovely is it in fact, that we are forgoing any of our usual attempts at punnage, despite the rather obvious and almost uncontrollable urge to riff on that song title.
No, instead we shall just focus on what Mr Sivu does so well, and that is write dreamy and emotive lyrics to accompany sublime melodies and deft musical arrangements. Here the delicate electronica of the beat plays lightly amongst the soft horns and synths like a tiny tribe of jungle elves while his fragile falsetto drifts and caresses. It is soothing and calm whilst stirring emotion and imagery within your relaxed and fertile mind. We do rather love it.
The whole thing walks serenely like an enchantress through a mystical wood and my oh my, it is gorgeous.
Sorry, couldn’t resist it.
”My Oh My” is available as a free download for a limited time from the Soundcloud player below.
