Artist: Wyatt C. Louis
Song: Dancing With Sue
Dancing With Sue is a lovely song that wraps you in the comforting feeling of home. Though the strong songwriting is the core, the vocals take it to another level. Wyatt hits some seriously impressive notes, but he does it with such a nonchalance that it only adds to the simple charm. A wonderful showcase of songwriting and musical talent.
Artist: Oh Wonder
Song: Don’t You Worry
Album: Home Tapes
Oh Wonder’s Home Tapes project continues with Don’t You Worry, a stripped-down track that radiates warmth and comfort. When they sing “Don’t you worry bout a thing” in their lovely blended vocals over soft acoustic guitar, it makes me believe and trust them 100%. Thanks Oh Wonder!
