I’ve been nothing but impressed by the new music I’ve heard from Swedish artists over the past couple of years, and this latest single from Gothenburg’s Maple & Rye is no exception. Channelling the anthemic folk pedigree of Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers, ‘Only Hope’ is the kind of song that’s made for sharing, the kind made for bellowing out the chorus arm in arm with your friends. The uplifting melodies drift around like blossom on the breeze, while the lyrics tell of that one person who brings joy and stability to your life when all else seems to be crashing down. It is a heartwarming reminder that we’re stronger together, and with our friends by our side we can weather any storm. This festival ready hit is just the summer anthem your playlist has been missing. Just grab a friend, play it loud, and go make some memories.
