Michael Day’s heartfelt lyrics and soothing melodies take listeners on a nostalgic journey and make them part of his world of childhood memories and gentle reflections. The acoustic and electric guitars of the song mesh beautifully, making one feel nostalgic and yearning. The trumpet’s mournful tones further amplify the emotional depth, conjuring images of a more secure, comforting past.

The reason why this song stands out as strikingly touching is due to the fact behind it. The deaths of Michael’s grandparents during its creation infuse the song with raw emotion, making it a touching tribute.

The collaboration with talented musicians like Ben Humphreys, Ryan Svendsen, Rhyan Lyndon-James, and Dave Rajendram, under the skilled production of Andy Lawson and mastering by Will at King Willy Studios, elevates the track. The artwork by Robyn Paints, based on a picture from Michael’s grandparents’ property, and the music video shot at the same location, add visual layers to the song’s narrative. The video’s contrast between vibrant childhood memories and the now quiet, empty house is striking and thought-provoking.

All in all, “Nan and Pop’s House” is not just a song; it is truly a beautiful piece of art that pays respect to family, memory, and time. Michael’s ability to capture the character of love and yearning is truly inspiring as this song is capable of being a sentimental tribute that is touching the hearts of the listeners at such a personal level.
