We continue to be amazed each time we receive new music from Shallou in the lead up to his highly anticipated ‘The Long Way Home’ EP, with the Los Angeles artist coming through this week with the soothing ‘Here’ that provides us all with that atmospheric bliss and calming manner that we could all bask in as we lead towards the end of the year.
As his most recent singles have showcased, Shallou ensures a lightness in his approach to ‘Here’ with those majestic vocals floating across the mix whilst they are complimented with the uplifting supporting instrumentation of breezy guitars, strengthened synth bass and bright keys that collectively produce a vibrancy that immediately lifts your spirit into a more positive state of mind.
“I spent November and December alone for the 2020 holidays in a barren LA. ‘Here’ is my lonely anthem. I tried to synthesize house elements and folk elements into something unique here.” – Shallou
