Universe is the work of Hunter John of California. “I” sounds like a beautiful, epic dream. The synthesizer and aching keyboard notes delicately tap out melody with dramatic swells. But it’s John’s sweet tenor above the music, gracefully ringing out clearly, that gives this song a heart.

“I believed what you told me, that everything might be ok. We’ll try to live longer, and we can be stronger!”

Universe thrives on clarity, in a world where it’s hard to come by, and is something artists shy away from in a quest to be deep. The music and especially the lyrics here are completely positive.

“I” is off the soon to be released album, “Gazing, Gazing.” Get more info, order a record and check out more songs at Friendly Ghost Recordings or muxtape.
