The Daily Krapht – Joe Pug – “Bright Beginnings”
There’s a delightful simplicity that embraces the listener when pressing play to hear “Bright Beginnings,” the first track off of Joe Pug’s forthcoming album, Windfall (due out March 10, 2015). The Austin-based singer/songwriter starts “Bright Beginnings” with a guitar riff that continuously repeats for the entire song and as the seconds roll by more instruments join in.
Listening to Pug’s soft, sincere, emotionally driven vocals are like a baby listening to a lullaby that gently rocks it to sleep. Pug relaxes the listener and the piano brings a sense of hope and positivity throughout “Bright Beginnings.” The lyrics are also hopeful, with Pug singing, “Bright beginnings often fade, precious few can keep the flame.” The sounds of an upright bass add a gentleness to the song as it pops in and out bringing an extra element of joy to “Bright Beginnings.”
After coming home from a busy day at work, nothing’s better than putting those headphones on while you drift away to this soothing piece of art by Joe Pug. If you enjoy his music, check out his website to see when he’s coming to a city near you as he promotes his new album, Windfall.
