Why do we like this?

If you don’t already know, let me share with you what the word halcyon means because I had to look it up myself. Halcyon refers back to a time in the past that was “idyllically happy and peaceful.” Knowing that definition perhaps makes “Halcyon Days” the most fitting song title because the song carries you away to a calming, joyful and carefree dream. There’s room for escapism and surrealism in this halcyon space Kip has created with this song.

Kip Nelson uses old microphones and cassette tapes to add a unique texture to his work. I love the almost-60’s-sounding groovy guitar, surf rock, and desert feel. The song sounds wavy and oscillating. It’s a song that soothes and calms me yet is also dark, hopeless, and intriguing enough to listen to on repeat.
