Sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and appreciate beauty and simplicity. That’s what I found myself doing while repeating “Ambergris”, the first single off Long Live, the forthcoming record from Toronto’s Snowblink. The duo at the core of the group are Daniela Gesundheit and Dan Goldman, and they have toured in support of Owen Pallett and have performed and paired up with a number of really talented acts.
Gesundheit’s understated vocals carry this tune as they meander across some simple guitar strumming, string plucking and light percussion. Her voice sounds like a powerful, pretty whisper at all the right times, and as best I can tell the lyrics are about finding happiness and wishing someone all the best in the world. Now isn’t that sweet?
Just absorb the uncomplicated wonder, enjoy the video and download the song below.
