Reliably informed

Yellow by Sam Thomas is doused in summer; the notion of the warmth and pleasure the season can bring, encompassing a state of mind as well as better weather. Soulful and lo-fi, sunny and breezy, the single mimics the feeling of sauntering down a street with the unassuming beat easily confused with the footsteps made in tandem.

The chorus is possessed by mantra-esque statements and convinced “the world is singing for the listener, getting swept up in the joyousness feels easy. Still, there remains elements of awareness of what’s come before – the vibes of the day aren’t just naturally beautiful, but the result of choices made: “I say hello to the people I like”. A song for when life is good, or when you need that little extra push to remember that it can be.
