Rarely do we encounter a song that entangles you upon first listen; the questions of “who?”/”what?”/”where?” are non-existent. You’ve fallen too deep into the music to even care. It stops you dead in your tracks, leading you to a blissful paralysis. The artist has demolished the layers and spoken to the soul. Its the phenomenon that every artist should strive to create, but most fail to do. Its the moment that the power of music is not only realized, but is truly experienced.
Emeli Sandé‘s transports listeners to this place on her debut single, “Heaven.” In every aspect that it can be judged, it is flawless. I couldn’t think of a better title for a song that soars to the heights it reaches. Definitely one of those tracks that will stay on repeat. Get lifted.
