Petrol Waves by August Green

I love how this track feels like a slow meandering. The foundation, laid by the organ, is harmoniously balanced with the subtle acoustic pattern. The very light keys or nuanced effects that embellish the verses add depth and mystery to the tune.

”With ‘Petrol Waves’ I want to highlight how many of us suffer from being so much harder on ourselves than we deserve. How we can shift our focus to the beauty of the now and ignore our demons of self-criticism.”

Poetic verse, fabulous songwriting, and a warm vocal are the big drawing cards for me. I found my first listen kept me on the edge of my seat, holding in and looking forward to the upcoming verse. August has an eloquent style of writing, there are lush visualizations and enchanting stories both building character while adding drama throughout the song.

Coming from Stockholm, August Green records his new single “Petrol Waves” in an abandoned church. Utilizing this space and unique studio environment, August took full advantage of the opportunity, being primary in the writing of his upcoming album, Vignettes, set to release March 2021.
