Kygo’s first original tune is gloriously summer-ready
Earlier this year, inthemix pegged Kygo as the up-and-comer to ‘rule the season’ based solely on the strength of his remixes. Now, on the last leg of 2014 (and fresh off the back of a local visit for Harbourlife), the Norwegian talent has hit us with a long-overdue original track.
Firestone, featuring vocals from Conrad, was first previewed in a short recap video of his just-wrapped North American ‘Endless Summer’ tour, and now it’s available to hear in full on Spotify. “I’ve been looking forward to sharing this track with you for a loong time!” he wrote on Facebook. “I hope you like it as much as I do.”
The track is classic Kygo – or as classic as one can get being a general newcomer to the dance world, anyway – bringing his smooth layer of tropical lushness to the forefront amidst crisp snaps and poppy synth chords that evoke sunny summer bliss. Check it out below.
