A lot of it features this warm inviting aspect one that never lets up. Thanks to this tenderness the song has a reassuring quality, which in this particular moment in time, feels particularly needed. Nor do they overdo things. Rather than utilize a buildup the song takes on an ebb and flow. Rising and falling action give the piece a living, breathing aspect to it one that gives it such depth. Volume is a given for the song seems impossible to ignore. Good cheer, a sense of peace and balance gives the work that sense of pure discovery and contemplation.
