I normally listen to podcasts while washing dirty dishes, but now it looks like I'm keeping this song on repeat.
Yebba’s voice is angelic and slightly jazzy, creating an instantly peaceful and euphoric mood. Her voice quavers just a tiny bit but the small amount of shakiness adds some delicacy.
Yebba builds this song magnificently. The quiet intro takes its time easing the listener slowly into the song. Compare the first 30 seconds to the last 30 seconds, and you'll be surprised how smoothly the track crescendoed.
On top of excellent instrumentals, “Distance” is full of nostalgic lyrics that yearn for a moment in the past with someone special, like spending late nights whipping up food together in the kitchen. It captures the small but meaningful moments in life that you don’t realize you’ll miss until they’ve already slipped away.
“Distance” is one of the songs that will be featured on her first album.
