Song Review - Try A Little Love

Try A Little Love
by Big Smoke
EP: Lately (due 2015)

I'm not really sure what it is, whether it's the guitars or the words or those all encompassing, emotionally charged keys that make this song so damn sweet. I'm not really sure if it's the voice of Adrian Slattery, that so simply suggests a little something nice or if it's the gentle beat that lulls me into a sense of safety that makes me so happy. It could be just another folk song, indie song, pop song, whichever genre you prefer to use song, with it's simple guitars and sitting around a campfire style swing, but there's something about it that just seems so damn genuine I can't take my ears away from it and I can't take my heart away from it's sweet little message. Those harmonies as they swirl around each other, constantly giving and never ever taking are just divine, a warm blanket and a cool breeze all at once. With every listen there's a part of me that's lost in a place and time so far removed from here that I keep re-visiting over and over and that's a place that Big Smoke seem really comfortable with, so I'm more than happy to follow them there.
