A soulful success that celebrates life and perseverance following tumult, “Good For Your Soul” is the latest single from Molly Tentarelli, a singer/songwriter based in Portland, Oregon. “My mind is running wild and my head feels overloaded,” the vocals let out during the mellow verses, lamenting about times the world feels like it’s falling apart — while acknowledging a time given “to reflect and unwind, and let go of control,” in likely reference to the pandemic’s impact.
Suave piano lines and a funky rhythm section complement Tentarelli’s soulful vocal smoothness throughout, with multiple vocal layers converging in the final minute for a particularly impactful result. “Good For Your Soul” is a standout production from Tentarelli, who describes the release: “I originally wrote this song on piano during the pandemic in 2020. I believe that we are all still in a state of recovery from isolation. This song is meant to celebrate life with gratitude, love, hope, connection and happiness.”
