2018 saw Shaun Kelley & the Returned Gifts release their most momentous track yet with “Let Love Shine”. UK-based Singer Songwriter Shaun Kelly constructed the track with a little help from a collective of other musicians who all brought their individualistic styles to Let Love Shine.
From Folk, to Alt Rock, to Power Pop, to Indie, to Country, to New Wave, slight hints of a myriad of genres are perceptible throughout the prodigal mix which gives you plenty of time to fall enamoured by the distinctive arrangement. Let Love Shine is an incredibly powerful single, however it leaves you with the impression that so much went uncaptured in the recording due to the slightly lo fi feel of the single. Yet, the ingenuity in the synergy of the single is more than an indicator of the talent which is on display with Let Love Shine.
