Today’s delicious song of the day comes from Canadian soulful pop artist Denise Valle. Following on from the releases of Denise’s “Repeat Affections” in 2019 and iso-heavy instrumental single, “Quarantune” earlier in 2020, “Circles” sees Denise dedicate an anthem to her fellow over-thinkers, the ones who are accustomed to many sleepless nights overanalysing and comparing their daily interactions with others.
Speaking on the release of the single, Denise explains that she has been wanting to incorporate the latin language and culture in her upcoming EP; the voice at the beginning of the single is her mother’s reassurance that everything will be alright. “”Circles” details another day in which 3am has come and gone, the sun begins to rise,” Denise explains. “The bridge’s uplifting tones represent the dawn, with guest vocalists as songbirds, waking me into a new reality.”
I really like the slow burning vibe of Denise’s “Circles”, which not only evidently gives her enough time to showcase her over-arching vocal range, but also showcases her continue use of smooth, gliding instrumentals to drive along the story she is trying to tell within.
