In today’s age, technology has flooded our lives with content. Caught in the mire are today’s musicians who champion an art form that’s more widely distributed than any other throughout human history. And we, more often than not, overlook the music created by unfamiliar faces because it’s challenging. We’d rather have an easy listen, a known quantity to skim through while we think about something else.
Hearing is easy, but listening is difficult. Welcome to “Why We Like It”, where we rebuke the trends in favor of thoughtful analysis and underknown sounds.
“Miracles” – Darrell Simms
How We Found It
Why We Like It
Winter is here and it came early with “Miracles”. Over a soothing, yet simplistic backing track, Darrell Simms floats on the relaxing breeze he breathes into the track. The excellence and brilliance of this track is its simplicity; it doesn’t stretch too far with anything crazy or outlandish. The fun vibe touches down with the first chord; it’s a no-pressure good time that celebrates the small miracles in life that put us right where we need to be.
“I do believe in miracles, it’s not cause I ain’t spiritual. It’s just that it’s a miracle that I’m still right here. – Darrell Simms, “Miracles” (2019)
The joy that Darrell Simms brings to the track is contagious. His rap-sung flow eases the listener into the hook with him. It’s impossible not to have just as much fun listening as he’s having singing. “Miracles” is catchy and the lyrics are begging to be rapped along to with ease on any drive/ walk home. It’s the perfect happy go lucky soundtrack to sing down a snow-covered boulevard on a trip home for that cup of hot cocoa to make the final push to warm the soul. The lyrics in the verses are motivating but delivered in a way that suggests you don’t have to rush for anything. The track strolls at its own easy pace, thankful to have a listener to enjoy sharing the moment. Darrell Simms and “Miracles” create a freeing atmosphere to enjoy alongside those blustery winter days, and it comes just in time for the holiday season.

“I was listening to a lot of Tom Misch and Loyle Carner and that inspired me to do something more soothing with Lo-Fi production.” – Darrell Simms for CentralSauce
