Admittedly, my opinion of Kygo’s style at first was similar to Martin Garrix’s music. All of their songs promise an exciting or laid-back chorus, but the verses or build-ups are too mundane and have nothing exciting. As for Kygo, Firestone and his remix of Younger caught my eye, but it was Stole the Show that caught my eye after I was browsing YouTube.
The song initially starts with a promising drum fill before introducing Parson’s vocals that has a style similar to Aloe Blacc’s soul. Then it isn’t long before the verse develops into a catchy bridge and then Kygo’s relaxed and colourful chorus begins.
Starting with a vibrant flute effect along with backing synths, it is clear that this track continues Kygo’s joyful feel he creates in his singles. A powerful drum beat is then placed before the main melody appears – an electronic and galactic tune that’s euphoric and easy to dance along to.
