Reliably informed

This melodic piano-led song is, Sara Leilah says, the very first happy song she’s recorded and written. It’s fitting then that the lyric, told from the perspective of being in love but yet to experience it first-hand, is sung sweetly and innocently while the musical accompaniment shifts the melody around resulting in a very dreamlike feeling, like inhabiting a fairy tale.

There are groundswells of lush chords as the song progresses to its finish, right before the individually picked notes re-establish the main melody, that sound so endearingly hopeful they give you a joyful, smiling glow. It bodes well for any future happy songs, should they come, when they can be captured, crafted and delivered so perfectly.
