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.
Past Has Passed (feat. PkaCarl) - zuric
Los Angeles based zuric released his chill, indie electro pop debut single "Past Has Passed" earlier this year, and i am a little sad that I am just coming across it now...
Check the track out below:
"Past Has Passed" is really quite interesting as it takes elements from electro-pop, house, and even a little bit of an alt-rock flair and blends it all together into a really great chill-out song. The vocals seem to just float along on top of a chill track which uses a usual house-style production, but trends more into pop in its' chorus/verse balance, and the use of different instruments to give the sound a bit more dynamism is very clever. At its' heart "Past Has Passed" is a very good, mellow indie electro-pop song (so heads up if that genre is your jam), but it really adds those few little touches here and there to stand out as something special.
I'm actually a little bit amazed that it took me so long to come across "Past Has Passed", as this feels like a song that should have been rolled out on some late-summer night playlists, or in a campaign or chic-shop somewhere....
Regardless, I look forward to hearing what zuric comes up with next (and hopefully we get to heart it soon!)
