It’s rare to find a song that leaves you awestruck a few mere seconds after pressing play, but ‘Pushing Me Away’ does all that and more. The complex acoustic guitar work, elegant strings and Steve’s gritty vocals are more than enough to make this an early contender for song of the year. By the time you’ve thrown the Eastern influences, airy backing vocals and expressive percussion into the mix, the song just ascends to a higher plane. There’s something mystical about this track, like Steve is channeling some ancient spirit, and just by listening to it you can feel somehow connected to the world around you. Far from pushing you away, this track draws you in deeper under its spell with each listen as you bask in this incredible display of artistry.
