With playful drums, heartwarming instrumentals and divine vocal lines, "Sand To Snow" will be sure to pick you up and leave you wanting more.
Speaking about the single, he says: “Between desert indie-pop and cinematic psychedelia, this romantic tune is for fans of Bahamas, Andrew Bird and Mac Demarco. Celebrated with a release show on Earth Day, the song is a testament to the natural beauty of the Southwest, its vast expanse mirrored in the soaring vocal harmonies and rolling rocks captured by funk inspired drum grooves.
The song began nearly 15 years ago when I was first recording music as a budding teenager. It was all but forgotten for over a decade, but found its way into my world again after a 2-week backpacking trip with my girlfriend across western Europe. The song’s lyrics were born from the diverse cultures, environments and experiences we traversed together and which brought us so much closer together in our relationship.”
With a growing fanbase, immersive tunes and a great message, Gutos will be sure to get to the top.
