‘Stairs’ opens with a really mellow vibe through the vocals. There is a light echo to his vocal performance that creates a delightful depth while adding a touch of nostalgia. His voice forms a plush cushioning of coloured mist that you sink into and revel in. Through all of this, is a warmth that comes from the affection woven into each word.

There is a very easy flow to the single that comes through in both the melody and vocals which is absolutely wonderful.
