It manages to bewitch you in a short duration of about four minutes.
The song is a sweet serene beautiful ballad with a primarily acoustic guitar arrangement. Malin’s vocals are subdued and performed with finesse evoking strong emotions out of the listener. A beautiful and haunting song that captures raw emotion with a sparse arrangement, setting a melancholic tone.

The vocal melodies are captivating and emotionally resonant, and the songwriting is sparse and poetic.
Dom Malin would make proud his artistic influences like Bon Iver, The Lumineers, Damien Rice, and Lana Del Rey.
