New Year (I’m Counting on You) is a euphoric slice of Indie Pop Rock from up and coming artist Kerrin Connolly. The energy, soul and resilience contained in the anthemic hit may be the antidote to 2020 apathy which we’ve all been looking for.
The grounded optimism contained in New Year is potent enough to transfer into your own hopes for the new year. With the year we’ve all had in 2020, I don’t really need to tell you how invaluable this track is to the airwaves. The nuanced lyrics don’t serve salty reminders of the year just left behind, instead, they invite you to see the opportunity for reinvention and to cut the ties which bound us before the clock struck 12.
Kerrin Connolly’s latest single is available to stream via SoundCloud.
