It's easy. It's loose. It's cathartic. Singer-songwriter Mikal Cronin's first track off his latest single "I Don't Mind / Blue Eyed Girl" is a simple bout of chamber folk fun.
Rough and clanging acoustic guitar clouds "I Don't Mind." The musician's layered vocals stream in like butter, oscillating between energetic harmonies to softened words spoken from just a few inches away.
The track is sweet, like a candy bar, like vanilla ice-cream. High pitched piano chords march into frame, soloing amidst the strumming. It doesn't have much to offer in the way of originality, but sometimes all we need is that cliché sunshine on our cheeks and an Americana jam sesh.
