Each one of you making waves in your own way
I have a deep affinity for coming-of-age movies. So much so, that my John Hughes DVD collection and it’s Spotify playlist, have had more than their fair share of repeat plays; especially in the last couple of months. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want someone lovingly standing (2 metres, of course) outside their door, holding a boombox over their head; rather than just another postman delivering mail?

With spacious production and textured vocals that brim with joyous possibility, Glitra manages to effortlessly capture that happy final scene feeling, where friends and lovers wrap themselves into a loving embrace, as the camera slowly floats into the distance.
The accompanying video which Brijs described as a ‘visual love letter to those friends and that time’ is a montage of all those colourful Kodak moments that we unfortunately won’t be able to experience this year, but something I am sure none of us will be taking for granted next year.
