If you’re a fan of the charming soundscape that Owl City created during the early 2010’s with their magical hit Fireflies but want it showcased through a contemporary lo-fi hyper pop lens then this young musician is certainly for you. Reserv has been consistently crafting dreamy sonic wonderlands that make you feel as if you’re floating on air since 2020, constantly developing his sound with every release until he reached his grand-opus moment with All New Edition. There’s an underlying charm to this track that gives every cloud in your life a silver-lining, no matter what the morose weather outside might say this single will easily put a pep in your step. As I stroll through London with this single playing I can’t help but find the simple beauty of this place, be it the random cracks on the pavement, the oddly placed trees in the middle of a crowded city centre or even the lights turning on as night gradually arrives. It’s just one of those songs that makes the world more vibrant and teeming with life.
This fluorescent number lights up the space between wakefulness and the land of dream. It’s the perfect balance of compelling beauty and wistful playfulness that can’t help but make you smile at the world around you, even when sadness is surrounding you.
