For only his second released single “Awe Within” demonstrates the smooth songwriting, instrumentalism and poetic lyricism Sunlight Sleeping is capable of, and I am very excited to hear more from this new artist. A beautiful group of harmonies and sweet guitar melodies immediately pull you into this track, as a strong kick drum joins in at the first verse, feeling like a build up of butterflies in the stomach as your heart becomes more and more full. “Awe Within” is on the softer side of indie-alt-rock, vocals reminiscent of Marcus Mumford, and presents imagery of being in love within the magic of nature.
A note from the artist:
“This song was written about an evening in Washington State with my partner and watching the joy I saw within herself of being out in nature and seeing her in her favorite state of being and realizing what she means to me in those moments of exploring the wilderness together.”
