Good Steph – Call Your Mom

Released just before the end of 2023, this tune of singer/songwriter Good Steph has an irresistible core. In a soft environment, the calm vocals uniquely tell their story, and they trigger a very special retro vibe through their accessible and pure nature.

I love this straightforward and no-shenanigan way of songwriting. In this case, there’s a dreamy and calm backing happening, creating a soft environment that lets the listener fully focus on the vocals. And because of this concept, the song feels more like reading a chapter of a book than listening to a tune. Due to this special approach, the tune highlights the soft folk undertone, where it’s about honesty, loyalty, and respect. About life lessons, but not in a patronizing way. Done with retro-flavored textures, the tune just takes you on a stroll down memory lane, leaving it up to you what to make of it.

If you already gained the knowledge and wisdom of age, maybe you’ll find more than just the notes and the story between the lines. Maybe you’ll find yourself there. The singer manages to push the buttons to make the listener reflect on life with her song. There you have it, that’s what makes “Call Your Mom” such an awesome tune.
