Reliably informed

There’s something really joyful about Don Coyote’s sound and their latest single is no exception. Somebody is upbeat indie soft-rock, full of gleeful guitar rhythms and infused with jazz vibes. I think it’s the first line that draws me in, as lead vocalist’s Sam Wildsmith’s calm, mellow voice drops the phrase: “When everything you do is such a waste of time…

Highly relatable, especially at the moment, but gloom is quickly banished. The track has a happy, live quality to it, with backing vocals dipping in and out sporadically and little flourishes as the band counts in. It’s a delight! And at the heart of it all, is our basic need for connection. “Just think of someone…that makes you happy / And it takes the weight off.”

Released: 14.02.21
