The instruments accompany Tobias' voice like a good travel companion, background keys giving festival vibes and the searing guitar solo in the middle 8 is great contrast to the rest of the song.

Well spun track from TOBiAS. His tone's not dissimilar to Tim from Holy Holy and there's that same brand of authentic, worn-denim indie rock vibe running throughout.
