S A Reyners – “16 Lovers”

“16 Lovers” recalls an era of sophisti-pop where brass flourishes and twangy guitars are familiar cogs. The track is a success from S A Reyners, a New Zealand-based songwriter whose fond of dynamic guitar lines and melodic key-laden accompaniments. Certainly, Stefan Reyners’ sound is fondly reminiscent of acts like Prefab Sprout and Aztec Camera. Especially as the second half approaches, there’s an impressively dexterous range in melody and structural twists, particularly as brass spurts emerge alongside the organ and twangy guitar. “16 Lovers”is an alluring single from Reyners. Listen to more of his material on Soundcloud.
