Pete Philly did a lot while taking a break from the music scene. Last year he tied the knot with the love of his life, and now the couple is expecting a bundle of joy. He's also begun releasing a steady stream of singles as of late, with his tracks "FTP" and "All Day" being the most recent. He continues the trend with his latest single "Still."
"Still" is a mellow track built on looped guitar, snaps and programmed drums and vocal samples. It's a recipe that creates a loving ode to those he loves and the peace they bring. Pete rhymes and sings about finding a moment to just be with one another and free of all the pressures of the world.
"Still / Drown the sound out I need to be / Still / Find my way back to you," he sings on the chorus. "Still / Just for a moment, can we stay / Still?"
Seeing as the song is about finding the quiet moments in life, the song features quite a few where just the guitar and snaps are isolated to give a tranquil feel. In the end, though, he breaks that quiet calm to show off a bit of his lyrical prowess before bringing things to a close with a single "shhhh."
We've always been down for Pete Philly, and if he delivers on his promise of having many more releases to come, we'll be happy to hear them all. Grab a quiet moment with him when you press play below.
