Bongo Boy Record‘s resident multi-genre songwriter Clark Ford is becoming a fast favorite of ours. His previous two singles In Your Eyes and I Won’t Give Up On You were full of high notes, but this most recent work might be his best yet. Now releasing his third single on the label, Ford gives us the sweet, bright pop track Celebrate The Sun that’s absolutely perfect for the upcoming change of seasons.
Celebrate the Sun is the essence of summer in a 3-minute package. Everything from the strummy guitar and the tropical percussion to the saccharine female vocal just radiates that carefree energy that is endlessly reminiscent of the season. It’s light, airy, and warm – the quintessential summer mix. As always, the musicians bringing Ford’s work to life are expert level, bringing a polished cohesivity to the track that makes it effortlessly easy to listen to.
Often times Ford’s songwriting appears as the highlight of his work, and this new release is no exception. He’s managed to fully capture the feeling of the shift into summer weather in his lyrics, bringing thoughts of that first warm day after a long winter immediately to mind. The imagery is uncomplicated and extremely relatable, leaving plenty of room for you to imagine fond summer memories of your own as you listen:
“We don’t need a crowded beach or a swimming pool
We’ll have fun in the backyard just me and you
Don’t wanna waste another minute of this perfect day
Come on let’s get outside and catch some rays”
This is the perfect track to take us out of winter and get us ready for the warm weather that’s on its way. Bongo Boy Records has a winner in Clark Ford, whose songwriting never ceases to impress, no matter the genre he chooses to work in. Get ready for summer by adding Celebrate The Sun to your favorite playlist now, or look for it appearing on Bongo Boy Records Volume XXI, set to release later this year.
