Every now and then a synth-based ballad comes and sweeps us off our feat – such is the case with Sweet Tempest and their latest single, “Over Them Hills.” The Copenhagen-based duo harmonize over a crunchy synth backbone, singing about (what else) love and how profound it is as a concept. The duo achieves a shiny pop production without ever stepping into cheese territory – oftentimes the cold and calculated nature of synths can overpower the warmth one feels when they’re truly in love. Either way, it’s a true accomplishment when it comes to balladry. About “Over Them Hills,” the duo explains:
“It is a song about aching feelings and the overall absurdity of love and relationship between two human beings.”
You can find “Over Them Hills” on Spotify and Apple Music, too.
