Reliably informed

The tragic story of George Bailey from It’s A Wonderful Life is beautifully told in a tale with a positive outlook. Something Good wraps up the plot of the movie into a quaint, folky track that feels relatable and honest, with an outlook that could reflect onto anyone listening.

Simon York West has created a tender and reflexive track perfectly timed for Autumn. This debut single shows promise for the future of the multi-instrumentalist’s solo project, demonstrating his ability to use a film as inspiration and make a piece of music that is completely unique and humble.

The backing soundscape is beautifully produced, as even though the lyrics take forefront in this piece, the beauty of the slow guitars and folk instruments create a meaningful acoustic experience.
