NEW SINGLE RELEASED – Friday 18th June 2021
Benign and humane, LearningToDive’s latest song will leave you swooning….
Sophisticated modern pop, infused with 80’s influences – LearningToDive have created a wondrous and immersive soundscape with ‘You Said It Best and a real state of blissfulness for their listeners.
Narrated for the main part by spoken-word, ‘You Said It Best‘ instantly draws you in with its contemplative and palatial ambience. The instrumentation is incredibly delicate but also so lush – and there is a beautiful contrast between the masculine voice and the feminine backing vocals here. The female voices that adorn this song are angelic and the song is pristine and harmonious – it’s a visceral delight and a real sensation for the ears.
The song delivers underlying messages of positivity, encouragement and determination throughout. Perhaps the inclusion of the sound of children playing as the song takes a brief interlude is one that is meant to represent the future – a future that thrives and prospers. ‘You Said It Best’ is an emotional 4 minute journey – by the end of it, you will feel satisfied and pretty euphoric. I think, deep down – the songwriter wants us to know that it’s all going to be ok… it’s a story that is going to end well.
The story of the song….
As with all my songs, it takes a little bit of my experience, things I have felt, and things I have seen others go through as well as books and films I have enjoyed. The protagonist of this song split from his family as he didn’t feel that he had the freedom he needed, but time away from his ex-wife and children has him missing those aspects of family life he had taken for granted. He decides to return to the familial fold, to his wife who has just split with an interim live-in partner. He recognises his wife’s emotional intelligence, and although both are nervous, they are both also happy the family will be back together again.
“You Said It Best’ is a track that was recorded in Norway at the same time as the Norwegian Pop album (released April 2nd 2021) however not included as stylistically it didn’t quite fit. But a track much loved by all of us when recording it, and a positive message of familial reconciliation, hope and love. Bravo Bonez’s slogan is of course “Music, Hope, LOVE”.
