Get ready for the weekend with this feel-good acoustic track entitled “Golden Day” by Portuguese singer-songwriter Cristóvam. “Golden Days” brilliantly captures that easy-going spontaneity of being in your 20’s. Listeners will find themselves trying to search for a way to break the routine and light that spark once again while being encouraged to live in the moment. Cristóvam marvelously draws parallels this youth to the first days of spring.“I think there’s beautiful parallelism between Spring and youth and I’m hoping that we captured some of it in this song.”
It was a sunny morning and the sunlight had this tonality that reminded me of an old photo I had from 2009. That photograph was taken on a holiday trip with a group of friends. We were all teenagers, some of us approaching 20 and going through that nostalgic feeling of reaching the twilight of our youth. I always think of that specific photo as the perfect representation of my golden days of mine.
This easy-going track is filled with warm sunny hues in the musicality. Hopeful melodies with hints of sincerity and authenticity flow throughout with support of symphonic guitars and melodic vocals. There is a feeling of airy and freeing energy coming from the soundscape as it sets the sound into an intimate, positive setting. As the artist croons of spring and looks back to the sunny days of our memories, the hopeful vibe encourages listeners to live in the moment. “Golden Days” is such an inspirational song with gorgeous, warm melodies and sounds that you want to listen over and over to.
