Soft Melancholic Folk From Nylophone
Nylophone, out of Wicklow, Ireland, usually makes dream pop tunes layered in synths and textures, but on this go round with “Life Goes On,” he’s stripped things down to a folksy track that centers around gentle acoustic guitar and his delightful vocals. The song begins with begins simply, but there’s something in the melody that hooks you immediately. As “Life Goes On” progresses, you get some subtle jazzy percussion and the pace quickens into a bit of stomp. The lyrics tell a story, with the refrain of “Life Goes On” to round out the tune. It’s a lovely track worthy of a listen.
