Sunday Evening by Blake Baker ft. Yolanda Gabrielle: Review
Weekends are the best part of the week, aren’t they? You might just spend time with your family and friends, participate in leisure activities, or sit down and watch Netflix with your lover. Yet, time flies when you’re having a nice time. “Sunday evening”, a song released not so long ago by English singer-songwriter Blake Baker, is all about savoring the good times of weekends with your loved ones.
The entire recording has the feel of an intimate BBC Radio 1 live lounge session, possibly due to Baker’s years of experience performing in venues. On top of a swinging bassline and drum beat, he built the song with a clear focus on his rich, husky voice and acoustic guitar. As you can probably tell, folk, pop, and neo-soul are among the genres that dominate the track. It reflects a chill, relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. On a larger scale, the song embodies the idea of living in the moment. It serves as a reminder to stop worrying about the future or ruminating about the past and instead live in the present moment to the fullest. Don’t let the good times pass you by without truly appreciating them. “Don’t wake me up, I’m so in love, like every day is a Sunday Evening,” the song’s lyrics say.
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to get in my pajamas, light a candle and dance the night away with “Sunday evening” on repeat.
