Kygo – Firestone (feat. Conrad)
You have more than likely heard of Kygo. His remixes have brought with them a distinct sound that’s often better than the original and his Soundcloud has built up more than 100 million plays, but Firestone, an original song, is only going to propel him to even dizzier heights of electronic artistry.
The debut single is an immensely cool track that is utterly addictive. Beginning with a gentle, slightly muffled piano motif a light beat soon comes in that hooks you into the rhythm quickly. Conrad’s vocals are slow, haunting and tuneful and provide a nice foreground to the steadily growing music beneath. Like Kygo’s remixes, Firestone is chilled out so can appeal to those who aren’t keen on electronic music but skilled enough to satisfy listeners looking for something interesting.
Firestone is only the beginning of what will surely be a successful string of original singles from the world’s fastest growing artist. Quietly motivational it’s an ideal tune for any setting and gets just a little better at each listen.
