“Change” is the perfect song to begin a day with and this morning I found myself sipping coffee and listening to Shawn Skim’s uplifting melodies, warm vocal tones and timeless and relevant message of acceptance and going with the flow, even through life’s more difficult times…
The song is most definitely an ear-worm and I feel like the chorus lyrics and central motif of the track “We are going through some things, but why does it have to change our dreams” will be floating round in my head for days to come!
The opening sunny guitar chords instantly reminded me of Tom Misch on first listen and it was no surprise to learn Shawn Skim cites him amongst his influences which also include Coldplay, John Mayer, Bon Inver, Mac Ayres, Kings of Convenience and The Staves.
The artist has been working with drummer Moses Lee since meeting at college and their latest work see’s the band exploring more electronic and and analog elements alongside their familiar Indie and folk tinted sound which makes for a very pleasant listening experience you will want to repeat again and again!
