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. If you enjoy the track, please share it, so we can keep on talking about great new music!
Come Say Hello - Clouds and Thorns
Today on the Daily Song Drop I thought it might be nice to have a bit of feel-good folk to start the week off right, so we are going to chat a bit about "Come Say Hello" by Clouds and Thorns.
Check the track out below:
"Come Say Hello" is pretty much everything you could look for in a modern indie folk song: warm acoustic guitars, an addictive beat, perfectly chill vocals that are really hard not to sing along with, and overall, a track that feels welcoming to listen to (or you know, like a hug). I particularly appreciate the use of violin in this song, as while it is not always front-and-center, it adds just a little bit of something different to "Come Say Hello" that makes it feel a bit more grounded in traditional folk (which works greatly to Clouds and Thorns' benefit).
I bet you that Clouds and Thorns would be absolutely lovely to hear at a folk festival on a warm summer evening to just let your hair down a bit, and enjoy the warm air and the company of the people around you--at least, that's the way "Come Say Hello" feels.
If this is your first introduction to Clouds and Thorns and you are looking for more really good indie folk, be sure to give their self-titled EP a listen, including their debut track "Everything Is Possible Now" a fun, upbeat stomp-clap romp of a song.
For the first time ever on theguysfrom.com, here is the December Apple Music Playlist, and the December '17 Spotify Playlist! I decided that, rather than making myself crazy with a hybrid list between the two months (and thanks to the fact that I did a feature-full month) I would put this one together, which just means that the January playlist will be a tad shorter than most thanks to the TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 (with the in countdown order Apple Music TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 as Well as the Spotify TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 playlists here)
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or search for theguysfrom on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
