The Amazing – Ambulance

Screen Shot 2016-07-02 at 14.00.55Close your eyes, lean back into your chair and let the day slip away without paying any attention to whatever WhatsApp nonsense might be trying to distract you from what you’re about to hear. There’s no need for the real world when you can get swamped by these beautifully charming sounds from the aptly named The Amazing.

By name, by nature, by land or by sea, ‘Ambulance‘ is the sort of tune to wake you up out of any rut by recalling allowing you to centre your mind and focus on what’s really important. You’ve no need for flashy gizmos and gadgets when your ears are being treated to such softening luxuries that feel as though they were slowly rocked down from the heavens on a cloud so tender to the touch that you’d scare it off with a sneeze. Sometimes we all need something a little gentler to help us discover what’s missing or even to make us realise that we truly have everything we need.

This isn’t any kind of over-complicated, self-indulgent virtuoso performance – this is stunning music taken back to its subtle core and given a pillow so comfortable that you might have to order takeaway tonight. After all, there aren’t any clean bowls and you’ve been doing well with your diet lately. I for one welcome our new Swedish overlords.
