Last week, 25 year – old Toronto artists Charlotte Day Wilson released her new single “Mountains”. This song is one of the first tracks that I’ve actually listened regularly created by Charlotte. I was introduced to Wilson’s music back in 2017 through River Tiber and Daniel Caesar but never fully gave a dive into her work. The song is very soothing and calm, I love the use of background vocals while compensating with mysterious sounds. She does not overdue her vocals, always balancing her sound with the transitions of the song.
While listening to “Mountains”, I felt as if the song was trying to convey a long journey between one’s love life. It seemed as if Charlotte was struggling with many emotions and could not get over that “mountain” that would bring her to find happiness. I really love how I got those type of vibes of the song right from the beginning, it just shows how strong her work can put listeners into a certain mindset.
