Track Review

Small Town Artillery – Yellow Light

This tune lets you know everything is going to be okay.

The latest release of the Canadian band Small Town Artillery triggers some soothing relaxed mood in me. The melodic backing injects an almost vintage ‘it’s okay’ flavor into the bloodstream, while the vocals know how to blend in the backing scenery perfectly. I really like how the track paints a picture for me, pointing out that there will always be obstacles, but in the end this is just how it goes. The lightweight backing melodies merge with the harmonized vocals and extra effect tracks to feel natural, handmade and well balanced.

The secret weapon of this alternative pop track though is the video coming along with the tune. This is a thing of beauty. As if the handcrafted fella wasn’t awesome enough, there’s a whole story told with a slow yet very effective approach. The vid isn’t what you expect it to be, and this is what makes it outstanding. This relaxed mood in which the whole video was concepted and produced just feel right, done in this calm and relaxed, warm way. We need songs like ‘Yellow Light’ to remind us that life always will be full of surprises, decisions and unknown situations. We also need songs like this one to remind us that everything is going to be okay eventually.
