A sweetly upbeat track from the outset, ‘London’ combines sparkling riffs and dulcet luring vocals to create a relaxed track with positively captivating melodies. Although holding an underlying tenacious edge, striking lyrics convey a darker more personal depth – contrasting the singles overall lighter instrumentation.
An atmospheric track – haunting harmonies add an overall emotive air drawing you further into the tracks heartfelt depths – while a rhythmic drum beat and driving bass line give a slightly grittier edge to an overall perfectly crafted dreamy indie piece.
A passionate building energy carries the track throughout it’s duration, drawing closer to the final thirty seconds we are met with a change of pace as stand alone vocals are backed only by a slowing hazy riff and a distorted synth melody. Overall ‘London’ is a mesmerising track that will have you lost in its compelling edge and warm melodies, a truly brilliant track from Liverpool quintet Paris Youth Foundation – it leaves us excited for future material.
