This week’s Song of the Day articles will be featuring artists from Aura Music and Arts Festival, going down March 9-11 in St. Cloud, FL.
Album: For You
Pulled from their latest album, today’s song is from SOSOS, a featured performer at AURA Music and Arts Festival. Acoustic guitar, soft vocals, and a relaxed rhythm coming from auxiliary percussion give this song a weekend-at-the-beach feeling. Complimented with piano and a gentle chorus, “I’ll give paradise one more chance,” the song is well layered and features some Jack Johnson-esque harmonized vocals. This laid-back tune is reflective of the band’s South Florida roots and will take your mind someplace warm and sunny.
SOSOS creates a unique energy with their music by using root instruments: upright bass, pump organ, banjo, mandolin, djembe, melodica, and more. The quintet’s music has been featured in shows from “Friday Night Lights” to PBS’s “Roadtrip Nation,” so if they sound familiar there is a good chance you’ve heard them before without even knowing it. To hear more, check out their latest release “for you” and catch them at Aura Festival March 9-11.
