“The Steps” is the first in a series of releases for Here & Now Records and features singer Simi Stone. The track is a ethereal, cinematic soundscape that floats lightly over you, seeping into your mind and soul. “The Steps was inspired by a fantasy. The mysterious feeling of walking on ancient steps – ascending towards the sky. Simi’s voice represents the yearning from the cold blue sky as you get higher.”
Definitely the perfect track for those mellow moments and we look forward to hearing what else Baron has in store. Out now on Here & Now Records.
