I hate when artists give release dates for albums that are far away. Waiting until mid May to hear all of Cloud Nine is starting to get irritating for me. You would think it gets better as Kygo liberates more and more singles. Too bad that isn’t true.
This latest track seems to be an acoustic track as the song starts off with just a guitar. Kygo adds more and more percussion instruments until it comes to full with the “Kygo Style” of tropical house that is now starting to be expected from the DJ’s freshman album.
Kodaline, who has a very appealing voice, contributes to the song well, allowing for verses to align with the percussion and the guitar. During the drop, which is when the full instrumental comes out, Kodaline sings the chorus, which you really need to listen for in order to be able to hear him.
Cloud Nine cannot come out soon enough. Until then keep Raging.
