WINDMILLS

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM WINDMILLS

Canadian artist Windmills is back with his ‘moody indie swoon pop’ sound with a Summer anthem titled “As You Like It”. The indie artist is known for capturing the ethereal and otherworldly with an unmatched cinematic sensibility. There’s an immediacy and sense of nostalgia to Windmills’ work and his new release is no exception.

With Summer beginning, “As You Like It” is set to become an anthem for the period. The track is characterised by infectious hooks, a driving drum beat, pulsing bass, and Windmills’ trademark “optimistically cynical” lyrical charm. In my opinion, it’s the ultimate soundtrack for a road trip. Especially with a melody that stays long in your head after the music stops.

My favorite part about the song is its unique structure. Without a traditional intro, the vocals hit as soon as the instrumental begins. Surprisingly, I haven’t heard many songs starting this way and I loved it, we are immediately drawn into Windmills’ musical universe.

Windmills is a songwriter unafraid to explore the darkest and most challenging aspects of the human experience in his songs. Through his music, he reveals light in the shadows. To do that, his work is layered with lyrical and poetic subtext to invite us to explore our own hidden emotions. So much so that you need to make sure to listen to the song more than once to fully grasp its meaning.

All in all, for those seeking a new favorite song of the Summer and for fans of indie pop, “As You Like It” seems like a perfect choice.
