Vikki Gilmore – “everything & more”


A tender folk ballad from Vikki Gilmore, “everything & more” reflects on moments one wishes could last forever. Soulful guitar twangs and grounding vocal lead reminding fondly of Weyes Blood, with swaying guitars and reassuring vocals “you are everything and more,” – resonating with sweet sincerity. The “let this night last forever,” chorus portrays a chilling yearning, accompanied by twangy guitars and a backing acoustical pulse. “everything & more” is a lovely success from Vikki Gilmore.

Artist notes on the track below:

“‘everything & more’ embodies a bittersweet last moment between lovers not yet ready to say goodbye. This Valentine’s Day release tells the story of two individuals who, in reminiscence of the love they share, would do anything to stay in this moment, in each other’s embrace. Nostalgic of the Winnie the Pooh quote, “how lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard,” this song reminds us how important it is to appreciate the ones we love.”

“everything & more” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.

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