Skyrocket is German indie band, Notes from the Living Room‘s pièce de résistance single. It is a soft and pragmatic masterpiece from the talented duo Matthias and Anna Wurm, collaborating for the first time following the pandemic. Skyrocket is a soulful sunset tribute to stopping-and-smelling-the-roses, a celebration of life’s finest joys in a composition like melted cheese. Their unique blend of bedroom pop and acoustic soft rock makes for a down-tempo melody that journeys blissfully from nostalgia to hope and perseverance. Somewhere, the song finds that the answer to the human condition is in enjoying the nitty-gritties of existence. Give it a listen at
