Upon hearing Firestone for the first time, Kygo’s traditional style of synth melodies was catchy. However, with a lack of drums in the verses, I was put-off with the soulful feel. Instead, it became a song where the chorus was memorable, but the verses were a let down. But now, the song has grown on me, and Firestone is this week’s Musical Discovery.
As for Conrad Sewell’s vocals on the track, the song definitely has an emotive soul feel to it due to the verses being so basic and with a lack of instruments. Unlike Parson James’ soul in Stole the Show, this track has a vibrant and colourful feel to it. Also, with the track being released in December 2014, there is a possibility that it could last into summer 2015 and be a contender for this year’s summer anthem.
