“Let me go Son” is BUKVE’s debut single. It’s a deeply personal song about letting a father go, not letting his death linger in his life anymore, and also speaking to his son; live your own life when you grow up, you don’t have to walk in my footsteps. It features vocals and steel guitar from the eminent talents of British Firewoodisland, and is produced and mixed by Stamos Koliousis. The song is mastered by Grammy winner Big Bass Brian Gardner (Dr. Dre, David Bowie etc).
|BUKVE is the solo project of songwriter Sveinung Fossan Bukve (Secret Treehouse, Vöödöö), who seeks the best for each of his songs, bringing in guests wherever guests are needed to get the best out of the song. The sound will vary in a familiar world of indie pop and alternative pop. A wide selection of collaborators will feature. A full debut album is in the making. BUKVE works closely with producer and friend, Stamos Koliousis, and it is all being visualized by Achilleas Gatospoulos, merging BUKVE’s great Great Grandmothers, Alvhild Fossan’s old drawings and paintings with glaciers, rivers and mountains, from where BUKVE’s family name origins from.The lyrics are very personal, and all music and lyrics are by BUKVE.|
The song starts off very atmospheric and almost dream like. The arpeggiated steel guitar gave this song a kind of darkness. The vocals are very soft and beautiful. The background vocals were a nice touch and really brought out the depth of this tune. I love when the drums kick in adding momentum and emotion into the song. The lyrics repeat “let me go son you’re not alone” in a very comforting and soothing tone. I really enjoyed this one and I’m excited to hear more from this artist.
