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.
H.I.G.H. (Her In Greater Heights) - WavyTheCreator
Nigerian filmmaker, visual artist, and now, with the release of this debut single, musician WavyTheCreator starts off our week of Daily Song Drops with the chill, feel-good, indie house track "H.I.G.H. (Her In Greater Heights).
Check the song out below:
The opening of "H.I.G.H." sets the tone perfectly for the rest of the track: a chill, almost ambient beat underneath a bright flourishing piano leads us into what becomes an excellent (especially in the dog-days of August) "chill outside in the heat" house track. The vocals are balanced along the top of the relaxed beat perfectly; it's rare, especially in a first track, to have the vocals slot into a track flawlessly (and not overshadow the feel of the song), and WavyTheCreator nails that here.
I'm very much looking forward to seeing what Wavy does next, as I think we all need more, well-executed, chill indie electronic music in our lives.
At least, I know I do.
Here's the July 2017 DSD Playlist! We're missing a few tracks this month, which is sad for the Apple Music folks, but you've still got a really solid list this month (if I do say so myself, which I do...*cough*)
We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the July '17 Spotify List (which features 1 more track than the Apple Music list).
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
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
