Right from the beginning he sets the mood. His voice has such an easy-going nature to it while it all feels so soothing to behold. There is a reassurance to the spirit of the track for his lyrics have a gentleness that is lovely. So many different layers intermingle yet the sound retains a light, bright, and airy quality to it. While rooted in pop, he takes in pieces of rock, country, and even a little bit of folk to enter into the fray. All of this is filtered through his own unique experiences as the song grows and builds in clever, thought-provoking ways. Volume is a must for this is the sort of song that deserves to be played loudly from the radio as one drives along the coast. There is a dreaminess to it and it is a true joy to get lost in.
