Following his recent EP In Vermouth, Bavé returns with a new single. A new artist to us, the Swedish artist who hails from Gottsunda (Uppsala), crosses into our soulful borders with ‘Who Got the Magic?‘.
The track begins with a dreamlike intro, putting the listener in a mindset of fantasy and fairytale. This feeling continues throughout the track, but the song builds unexpectedly after the intro with an undercurrent of vintage rock guitars and laid back but powerful drums. This, combined with Bavé’s brilliant falsetto, creates a unique and personal sound.
The sound might be fairytale and dreamlike, but that does not mean it lacks emotion. On the contrary, the track is highly expressive and truly moves the listener. Pain and melancholy walk beautifully hand-in-hand with hope and curiosity, resulting in a wonderfully honest and authentic song, emotionally conveying a message through Bavé’s distinctive voice.
The artist himself says that while many of his songs are autobiographical, it is also important for him that others can relate to his music. We are optimistic that this is the case with Who Got the Magic?
It has a timeless feeling to it, which goes beyond space and time and crosses borders. It’s a song where soul meets rock, restlessness meets peace, and fairytale meets reality, creating a 2:55 minute-long universe of its own, where anyone is welcome.
