Track of the Week: “Bright Leaves” by Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin

Given the beautiful changing and falling leaves around us as we step outside, this week’s Track of the Week is appropriately “Bright Leaves” by Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is an indie pop band from Springfield, Missouri. “Bright Leaves” is a part of there most recently released album “Fly By Wire.” Their album consists of many soothing, spacey melodies that develop beautiful calming tunes.

“Bright Leaves” is the eighth track on their new album. With colorful words and beautifully scripted lyrics, this song is a mellow, soothing, all around chill track of the album. “Bright Leaves” ┬áis a strong representation of SSLYBY’s ability to write a great song. The vocals soar right over the earthy strumming guitar underlying the piece. The lack of drums contrasts some of the other pieces on the album which makes this particular song unique and interesting to any listener.
