Stop and smell the roses: Elijah Kusel reminds us to take a step back on ‘Flowers’

Solo indie-rock artist Elijah Kusel returns with his second single and this is a groovy affair that will have you thinking about taking a time out on ‘Flowers‘.

With the world in a flux and our heads spinning more than the planets alignment, its always good to take a moment to have a break and reflect for a moment. Enjoying what you have currently, even if you thought the year would be different, is so important. That is the message on this soulful R&B single that makes your back shiver as the beat is full of breathtaking bass-lines and vocals that put you in a peaceful mood.

His simple and relevant story drifts along and helps you take a step back, rather than a sprint forward like 2020’s stress filled race.

Flowers‘ from Elijah Kusel is the perfect message for this crazy year and his mellow voice is like sitting on a new chair recliner. The snap back and chill is exactly what the doctor ordered. The melodic soundscape flies up above and is a pleasure on the soul and his indie R&B fusion takes out the shadows to bring in some sunshine.

Grateful for nature: Smaiblue brings simple beauty to music that is often forgotten on ‘Caught In September’

https://smaiblue.bandcamp.com/track/caught-in-september-thats-enough-love-songs-see-you-soon

Taken off the flourishing 12 track album ‘That’s Enough Love Songs – See You Soon‘, this is a beautifully created and nature-inspired song to help those weary minds to walk away from the TV screens for a few moments. ‘Caught In September‘ from the sensationally honey-coated voice of Smaiblue might be your new meditation go-to track.

Her voice is so peacefully innocent and the story of being around the gorgeous purple flowers is lucidly imagined as we can shut off our work brains for a short while. This is about forgetting our worries and wondering about how they grow and when. The sweet nature of the song is such a welcome relief from the real world. Everything seems to be so serious and it feels that you are carrying a massive boulder on your back the entire time.

This is a throwback to the old school type of love and feel, the tenderness is so lovely and natural. The earthy start gets you into a peaceful trance right away and the lyrics are so meaningful. Being grateful for the small things is something most of us need to remember, as everything is so fast as we scroll throw hours of meaningless junk.

Smaiblue teaches us to not stagnate and remember that looking at nature is the key to being happy. ‘Caught In September‘ is the story of believing in each other when you feel lost or sad. The world can be simple and worthwhile if we just put down those pesky electronics for a short while and just look at that beauty around us every once in a while.
