Everyone knows that there’s nothing worse than being told to smile. But somehow, in a feat of aural wonder, singer-songwriter Christian Valdez has gotten away with it in their latest single “Go on and Smile” ft. Jonny Arenas.
The light and airy single packs in plenty of sentimentality. Before the lyrical demand to smile even comes you’ll feel your soul suitably lifted by this sticky sweet Indie Acoustic Pop hit. Christian Valdez uses a succinctly subtle infusion of Jazz Blues in Go on and Smile which introduced indulgent layers of Soul into the mix. There’s also a sure enough serving of quintessential sunny Folk charm to ensure that the blissful vibes offered by Go on and Smile don’t fail to resonate.
