It’s a slow song with a folky vibe, however the minimalist quality the track starts out with only serves to make it sound more beautiful. The verses have a gorgeous piano melody, with the choruses erupting in a huge burst of energy, seeming positively anthemic. The chorus is where the track truly shines, with Róisín O’s vocals really soaring here.
