Tjuv – “Bike Freedom”
Featuring stirring strings and melodic guitar work, “Bike Freedom” is a striking new track from Tjuv. The Swedish act describes the effort as “an emotional epos about friendship, bikes, growing up, broken hearts and weed.” Navigating with brisk strings, twinkling keys, and a captivating vocal quiver, the track exudes a timeless quality, following in a tradition of tracks about hitting the open road, both literally and figuratively. “We stayed up and watched the stars,” the vocals sing, quickly accompanied by apt strings that seem to cast an illuminated moonlit glow. The final minute features a bustling assortment of guitars and symphonic elements, giving the strong vocal lead a reprieve. “Bike Freedom” is a recommended track from a clearly talented band.
“Bike Freedom” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2018’ Spotify playlist.
