Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Last Page - Sam Way
London based singer/songwriter Sam Way has created a song in "Last Page" that feels like it has been ripped out of the "next-big-romantic movie hit". It's thoughtful, and walks that fine line of being a love song about pining, without ever falling into the trap that makes the song creepy (...we all know what I am talking about).
Check out the video below:
Musically, "Last Page" is wonderfully produced, as it balances a lot of its' heavy lifting on rhythm (drum) and piano, and then sweeping up in the chorus to not only give the track an interesting build, but allows Way's sweet, heartfelt vocals to control the sound (a great choice). I also love, as the story of "Last Page" continues the use of backup vocals leading into harmony; the song tells a story in a few different layers, and that's really damn impressive.
I'm not typically a fan of slower love songs, but "Last Page" is one that I just had to share with y'all, particularly as I have listened to it enough already that I can sing along to the chorus...and come on now, indie rom-com filmmakers: here's your end credit, swell of music as the camera drone/crane's away from a kiss in the park/street/snow/haberdashery.
Well, I tried my best (...like I actually have control over anything when it comes to Apple Music), and even though we are missing a couple of tracks, the DSD Playlist - Feb 17 is out now, and it's pretty damn great.
Hope you enjoy it too!
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
