Kirch – “Sweet Sunshine”

An Ohio native who’s presently writing music out of Nashville, Kirch is an artist who – in his own words – enjoys “synth solos, planets, and smiling faces – in that order.” The former is noticeable rather early on new psych-pop track “Sweet Sunshine”, a psychedelic viber that unveils Kirch’s vocals a bit over a minute in, his space-y nonchalance meshing beautifully with the buzzing distortion and ethereal backing synth pad. The soaring hook at the two-minute mark injects some extra vocal emotion – “sweet sunshine” – into the synth-adorned arrangements. Full of atmosphere and captivating songwriting, “Sweet Sunshine” is a stellar track release from Kirch.
