A Mother’s Love Is Present In Banyan’s ‘Holly’
Long before friends and significant others were in the picture, our family loved us first. Till this very day no matter what situation we find ourselves in, they’ve never left our side. Heck, even when we’re miles apart the love they have for us will always be felt. Like a soft and gentle breeze, they’ll forever be present in our hearts, minds and souls no matter what. They’re a clear example that love is indeed powerful, comforting and encompassing.
This intense love of family rings true with musical duo Michael Saenz and Logan Gomez aka Banyan’s latest song entitled ‘Holly’. Released May 26th in all major streaming platforms the world over via Serotonin. Banyan’s ‘Holly’ is a tribute to Michael’s mother who experienced serious health concerns. An exquisite heartfelt way of saying “I love you mom!”, it paints us a picture of a resilient woman with a warm and loving spirit. One that would never back done to any challenge brought by life as well as possessing that distinct warmth only mothers could give.
A tune without lyrics, Banyan’s ‘Holly’ makes it up with its uplifting beats, rhythm and instrumentals. Instead of going for the brain and allowing us to think. It goes straight to the heart providing us this sensation of being in cloud nine with the one we love most – in this case ‘Holly’. Perfectly mirroring what a mother’s love should be in the first place, a welcome and comforting light that’s stronger than any force known to man. Genre wise, it stands out beautifully in a music scene that’s constantly on the edge. Definitely a breath of fresh air, it leans more towards the more human aspect of artists and it’s audiences. The thing is, we don’t need to be a party person or part of the ‘in crowd’ to understand ‘Holly’. All we need is to look at our parents, and we’ll get it instantly. That’s because no matter what we say or do, we will first and foremost be loving sons and daughters.
