Love Montage – “Flyin’ Home From Bali”


A melodic pop delight, “Flyin’ Home From Bali” is a breezy, island-set success from Love Montage. Lush guitars and twinkling keys join with charming, dreamy vocals — relaying “the inner monologue of a rich man who spends his days in an island paradise — alone.” A sense of ’60s surf nostalgia is apparent amidst wordless vocals and keys past the one-minute mark. “Flyin’ Home From Bali” has a tendency to transport to a lusher, comfortable place, in terms of soundscape, all while the lyrics emphasize a yearning. The track hooks melodically from the get-go and never quite lets go.

“Flyin’ Home From Bali” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
