Swedish band Band Of Pockets have released a duo of tracks / Better Day and Feel Me.
‘Better Day‘ is a soulful R&B masterpiece deeply rooted in African-American Christian music tradition. This single exudes gospel goodness, creating an immediate uplifting atmosphere.
Led by Yona Marie, the American soulstress brings forth rhythm and praise, delivering a powerful message of faith, hope, and love. It serves as a reminder that no matter how challenging the situation may seem, there is always a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.
‘Better Day‘ addresses an important and timeless theme: the significance of believing in each other, trusting our fellow human beings, and letting love be the guiding force in the world rather than hate. The single boasts superb production, featuring an excellent harmonica solo by Swedish musician Paul Kovac, reminiscent of the pure essence of Stevie Wonder. This song’s catchy chorus and infectious groove inject positive feelings without side effects!
The composition credits for ‘Better Day‘ belong to Johan O. Nilsson and Lilling Palmeklint, with special guest Britta Bergström lending enchanting background vocals. Britta, one of Sweden’s most sought-after background singers, has lent her voice to renowned programs such as Allsång på Skansen and Så Mycket Bättre, among others, contributing to the sublime arrangement of the track.
BoP is a collaborative collective uniting musicians from the USA, South Africa, Argentina, and Sweden. Formed in 2020 and spearheaded by Swedish guitarist J. Nilsson, the group works closely with singer Yona Marie. Together, they have released an impressive repertoire of over 20 songs to date!
Staying true to the origins of physical records, Band of Pockets presents two singles akin to the A & B sides of a vinyl single.
Moving on to ‘Feel Me,’ a delightful neo-soul number with a jazzy flair. Its gentle and calming vibe evokes images of palm trees swaying on a cool night. This guarantees that you’ll be captivated and move to the rhythm in no time.
Both tracks are ideal for setting the mood and will keep you enthralled throughout.
