Heaven Ain’t A Lonely Road by Youngtree & The Blooms: Review
As seasoned members of Canada’s music scene, Youngtree & The Blooms are renowned for their ability to blend multiple musical genres. With some lineup adjustments, the group is back and better than ever as they celebrate the release of their brand-new 90s alternative pop-rock single, “Heaven Ain’t A Lonely Road”.
The track is layered with joyous tambourine bits, steady rhythm beats, and deep electric and acoustic guitar melodies. When taken as a whole, it creates an environment that is both engaging and uplifting, which acts as a counterpoint to the introspective lyrical tone of the song. Youngtree presents a unique dialogue with a friend who is hospitalized and has time to ponder on what is truly important in life. It is a difficult situation to be in, but if you live your life with no regrets, you will have everything you need in the love and friendships that surround you. The lyrics also remind us to appreciate the people in our lives and to keep working toward our goals. It touches on emotions and humanity in a sensitive yet serene way.
“Half this battle is
Having friends that love and help you on the way
We’re not here to do this alone
We’ve got people pushing us along
If Heaven’s a path, then all I know
Yeah all I know is that
Ooh, Heaven ain’t a lonely road”
The band’s next self-titled album includes nine tracks, including this single, which will be available soon. Keep an eye out for it!
