The newest addition to Skylights already impressive catalogue of songs is stunning.
If you love bands like Oasis, The Verve, or Shed Seven, you’ll love this. It’s much softer than I expected, the piano backing is brilliant, and the guitar compliments the tune without overpowering.
Listening to the track, ‘Time to let things go’ the lyrics are meaningful and tell a story, a sad one by all accounts, but it’s got an uplifting, motivational feel to it.
It’s an anthem and one I can see people singing along to at live shows, festivals and even the most intimate of gigs.
Guitarist Turnbull Smith says: “It reflects on life as if every moment has been written in a book; good and bad experiences, pivotal decisions and hard choices where you have had to let things and people go, no matter how hard it was to do, to ultimately change your path in life for the better.”
It’s more melancholic than their previous work, but I’m here for this softer side of the band.
I can see it the song being done beautifully on acoustic too – something would headline the acoustic section of any gig.
The single artwork, done by Painted Pappillon Smile is fantastic, as it captures thought, euphoria and new beginnings.
I’m looking forward to the follow up of this, I’d be interested to see if it’s in a similar style or more towards the indie/punk style that outlines the likes of ‘Outlaw’ and ‘Enemies’.
