There are lots of components at work on Setting Sun's "Seasons", but songwriter Gary Levitt makes them cohere in an immediate way.

There are lots of components at work on Setting Sun‘s “Seasons”, but songwriter Gary Levitt is able to make everything seem smaller in scale—in a good way. While you notice the melancholy strings, layered acoustic guitars, boy-girl vocal harmonizing, and more jump out here and there, “Seasons” is immediate and delicate enough that you don’t realize how much is going on until you catalog all the elements in the mix.

  
The video for “Seasons” premieres on PopMatters; Setting Sun’s new album Be Here When You Get There came out this week on Young Love Records.
