Stefan Selbert is no stranger to forging a path of success in the music business, having worked on Crazyboy’s NEOTOKYO IV, which rocketed to number 1 in the Japanese charts. And now he’s back with his own release, the hook-laden and beautifully-tempered Your House.
If nostalgia was notes on a stave, and a collection of redolent lyrics, this is two minutes of that nostalgia being animated and delivered right into your ears. Your House begins with beautiful acoustic guitar work that wouldn’t sound out of place on a folk record for all its intricacies and expressiveness – before the slightly more modern drum machine enters to deliver a fitting injection of energy, just in time for you to reminisce on the feelings of butterflies you had over your crush all those years ago. The icing on the cake for this particular track, though, is Stefan’s vocals – which are beautifully intimate without being understated. In a world where Billie Eilish has tricked most people into thinking they should be whispering into a microphone, Your House holds a perfect example of how to sing like you mean it, but still retain an abundance of ‘zen’.
If you like putting on your rose-tinted spectacles and imagining what it would be like to still love the person you did a decade ago, this song will not only hit you right in the feels – but it would be the perfect song to have playing on your car stereo if you grabbed the bull by the horns and went to tell them that you’ve always felt the same.
