Island mellow vibes rinse rain from horizon throughout Pushpin’s entrancing new track “Running Shoes.”
Utter relaxation spread across the spectrum… This song is a cool gulp of ozone.
With wind in our sails…
We are swept away on waves.
Never to return.
“The elephant’s in another room. There’s always next time…”
Pushpin make no hasty moves in this supremely laid-back listen. “Running Shoes” works a special sort of magic on the mind with soft instrumentation and faint brushstrokes of exotic sonic color.
Guitar tones weave intricate webbing in notes and nuance as a lush haze of vocals condenses to dense atmosphere all around. Almost-tribal rhythmic pitter patter places emphasis on simplicity of sentiment – a calm surface for hidden depths of expression.
Chill as tundra, sunny as open sea, “Running Shoes” breathes like a living thing in tune and tempo. This song’s lyrical content is delightfully mundane, meshing well with its trance-inducing oceanic sway.
