Featured Song: Grynpyret – Kites.
Swedish producer and Soda Island inhabitant Grynpyret has returned with his first single in over a year – and it’s nothing short of breathtaking. The song is as cute as can be, starting off with a gorgeous melody and a sample of children playing, a theme that seems present throughout, as one can vividly picture kids running outdoors in the meadows, flying kites through the sapphire-coloured sky on a warm summer day, basking in sun.
“Kites” is in so many ways a tour de force – its percussion and sound design is immaculate, but it’s ultimately the track’s simplicity and profundity that overtakes you with joyful glee. The drop in “Kites” is stunningly powerful, almost parade-sounding, and the vocal sampling and string-esque chords on this one are beautiful. In all, the song is all we could have ever hoped for in Grynpyret’s return – and more.
Welcome back, you musical genius, you.
