“Remember” is a charmer of a single from Sydney-based act Carnival Mind, featuring material written and played by GrHogsongs. The track meshes naturalistic singer/songwriter intimacy with a shimmering power-pop whimsy; frolicking acoustics and steady vocals build amiably to the alluring “remember when,” effervescence.
An ensuing rise — “remember when we laughed, remember running like the wind?” — plays with a free-spirited retrospection. The dynamic acoustical presence plays invitingly throughout, ranging seamlessly from a folk-laden flow in the verses to a brighter pop charm in the hook. A rousing acoustical success with shades of Neil Young and Teenage Fanclub alike, “Remember” is a resonating release from Carnival Mind.
