Seductive piano work, guitar riffs, and baseline lead us with a strong appeal into an ultimately creative, memorable rock ballad, “Fireflies,” from singer and composer William London
Introducing a delicately guitar-kissed offering from an immensely likable and truly gifted William London, a refreshing take on the intimate, colorful, and infectious pop-rock song.
The tune is rapidly elevated and drawn in by great lyrics, followed by a beautiful mix of organic musicianship and clear rock building blocks, as well as gorgeously unique, gently raspy, and unmistakable pop-rock blended vocals. In short, this release by William London ticks a lot of boxes.
“Fireflies” showcases a level of devotion that is empowering – in both the subject and the performance. Extremely loving from the start but gradually progressing towards the gritty drop of the latter half, “Fireflies” showcases a level of devotion that is empowering – in both the subject and the performance.
“Fireflies” nearly seems influenced by the likes of genre legends in its ultimate storytelling and continually growing energy and passion, starting with a delicate string set-up and softly intimate vocals. Even the vocal’s tremor has an appealing purity and tenderness about it.
The track “Fireflies” takes things into more gritty rock territory. The subject matter is authentic to the singer’s objectives at its heart. However, we get a tumbling beat, a dreamlike arrangement, and a literal listing of turbulence on the way to optimism in terms of style.
The vocal performance is outstanding, especially during the rough times of increased emotion. The second half explodes into action, expertly tying things off and rapidly piquing interest in a return visit.
