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.
As Long as I've Got You - Ki
Ki is a fun indie-pop band from San Diego who infuse a lot of energy and fun into their music (who I actually first talked about back in February 2016), and that's honestly why I enjoy them as much as I do. If you listen to their music, it's hard not to feel a bit better, and those bands are totally necessary these days, but that aside, their musicianship is very impressive; you will hear a pile of different instruments across their work.
"As Long as I've Got You" fuses some pop, some folk, and a whole lot of awesome flute together into yet another compelling reason to love listening to them...
Check the track out below:
This is a track that indie pop/folk fans should have ready for their summers: it's bright, it's fun, it's catchy, it's beautifully produced, and I can only imagine how great it would be to hear live, with the right crowd, on a gloriously sunny day. I particularly enjoy the range of instruments/sound used in "As Long as I've Got You", and everything is balanced perfectly.
Plus, as anyone who listens to The Guys From Podcast is aware, we love us some flute...so "As Long as I've Got You" was always going to be right in my wheelhouse.
Ki is finally, after a lot of touring (nowhere near me...just sayin'), getting their debut album together, and I am quite looking forward to hearing it, as it is expected sometime this year.
The DSD Playlist - Apr 17 is now available! We are sadly missing one song from the last month (again), but I'm pretty happy with how this one all came together!
See you again tomorrow (with probably another completely different sounding song, so I can hate myself come Playlist time...)
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
