Irish singer-songwriter Sano Hill shares the vibrant, infectious alt-rock-pop anthem ‘Time Out’.
Offering a blend of 90’s rock-pop undertones with Hill’s singer-songwriter-pop tendencies, the track offers a compelling vocal performance over a rich multifaceted back drop. Built around Hill’s strummed acoustic, the track grows the subtle synths, punching drums and layers of guitar to create an expansive soundscape under the tracks unforced yet none-the-less catchy melodic hooks.
On the single, Sano shares:
“‘Time Out’ charts the story of a singer/songwriter trying to make a living and dreaming of success. Set in Galway city, I’ve tried to capture some of the colour and feel of the place, with references to experiences I’ve had, stories I’ve heard and places associated with the city.
It starts out as I usually start out in terms of the composition of most of my songs with me and my guitar before bringing a full band arrangement to capture and reflect the hope of rock success in the future expressed in the song – the reference in the chorus ‘I could be a rockstar’ is somewhat mischievous however – I don’t seriously expect that to ever happen (hence the laughter on the track) but it’s fun to imagine it might! I was fortunate to collaborate with some incredible people on this and all the tracks on the forthcoming album, including the Irish producer Larry Hogan (who plays bass and lead guitar here), with final mixing and mastering completed by the brilliant engineer and producer Braddon Williams who has previously worked with some amazing artists, including Beyonce, Mark Ronson, Billy Joel, and The Script.”
A track which captures a warming sense of nostalgia whilst retaining a fresh appeal, Sano Hill’s new single ‘Time Out’ is out now.
