I totally missed this back in July and for that I am damn sorry because that's 5 months I could have been obsessing over it. I think when this came out, the press was hot and heavy over Steve Grand and it was just eclipsed by that press machine but I think this song will stand the test of time and will be around for quite a while. It has enough of pop rock anthem and sensibility that if it were marketed correctly, it would be MASSIVE.
This song is built amazingly. The hook and the chorus are super catchy and don't get me started on how well Eli slays these lyrics. It's a gorgeous song and it needs to be a number one hit. It's not pretentious and it's just an honest to goodness love song that has absolutely no ulterior motive. It makes you feel something and that's important. Eli's voice has a rough hewn edge to it that adds to the gravity of the song and gives it more weight. The production is incredible and it's just an amazing song. Simply, amazing.
