Summer has definitely come late this year but with the sun now shining bright and temperatures soaring I’m very much in the mood for some joyous summer hits and with their latest single ‘It’ll Be Alright’ Only Sun have me covered.
The brisk 3-minute single is full of tropical melodies and riffs that meld Friendly Fires with Paramore’s latest record, it doesn’t take long for a smile to spread across your face as you soak in the mix of calypso rock and pop. Lyrics are equally bouncy and upbeat; I have no doubt that the single will be sound tracking many Summer road trips and holidays over the upcoming months. It just feels at home by the pool or the beach.
It’s light nature shouldn’t take away from the outstanding layering and production however, never once do the vocals overpower the instrumentals, both ebb and flow, raise and lower with each other and the chemistry between each member of the band is the secret to the song’s summery success. Make sure you add ‘It’ll Be Alright’ to your pool playlist this instant.
