Following the release of her soothing and soulful album Rose In The Dark, singer-songwriter Cleo Sol returns with another striking single. “Shine” serves a reggae-tinged vibe perfect for the warm summer weather, while encouraging the listener to let their inner glow illuminate. Her mesmerizing tone melts over the mellow track as she sings, “Shine, shine your light, yeah / This world was made for you, so do what you have to do / I wanna see you, shine, shine your light.”
From its beginning, 2020 – and all its shenanigans – has brought about a time when many are alone with their thoughts for the first time or are experiencing a range of unfamiliar emotions. This can and has caused many to sink into a deep, dark place of despair. However, this track aligns with the therapeutic nature of music and its ability to uplift, as it is a gentle reminder of our strength. Its quiet impact offers a bit of solace in the midst of the constant clamor and chaos of today and lightly nudges the listener to push through and persist in spite of it all. As with her previous releases, the British beauty continues to demonstrate her knack for creating timely yet timeless music that will speak to the souls of the masses for years to come.
Give Cleo Sol’s “Shine” a spin and, if you haven’t already, be sure to add her full Rose In The Dark album to your collection from your preferred digital platform.
