S.K. WELLINGTON – “MOMENTS BLISS”
A Spill Exclusive Music Premiere
The new single from S.K. Wellington is a shining example of golden folk-pop. With shimmering lead guitars, bounding drums, and pulsating bass lines, ‘Moments Bliss’ sits in the perfect pocket of folk, pop, indie, and rock. The ornamentation sets up lead singer Sarah Kemmer’s voice and lyrical objectives. Her sincere and heartfelt delivery rings through the sonic landscape with a commanding, but delicate force. Her lyrics come across in an impressionistic and poetic tone without losing a sense of place and space. The emotional impact is two-fold; you are living in the narrators shoes while also having room to develop your own story. None of this would matter if the song didn’t have a striking and infectious melody. ‘Moments Bliss’ shares both of those attributes. This is a perfect introduction to a noteworthy emerging act.
Sarah played with The Wellington Folk from 2010-2018. The band was named the region’s top three years in a row by CBC Searchlight. Now Sarah’s following up with her solo project.
The EP features the tight rhythm section of Juno-award winning The Bros. Landreth (Dave Landreth and Ryan Voth), as well as multi-award-winning musicians Murray Pulver on guitar and Mike Little, who also produced the album, on keys.
“Moments Bliss is all about finding serenity and joy in the small moments. Life can be draining and fast paced; it’s easy to get lost in the chaos. Even lost in positive things like goals and achievements. Moments Bliss is about the calm surrender we can find in the middle of nothing. In just being.”
Release Date: August 31, 2018
