Michael Simon Armstrong initially captivated us with “Frames,” a song that still ranks among the best we’ve ever heard. Now, he’s back with “Forget the Reason,” a delightful, fun-filled romp that’s sure to lift your spirits.
The track kicks off with the vintage-infused sounds of an electric guitar, quickly joined by the rhythm section, setting the stage for a joyful and upbeat experience. Unlike Armstrong’s previous release, “Forget the Reason” leans away from melancholy, opting for a brighter, more carefree atmosphere. While it maintains its folk-inspired vocal charm, this song has the potential to get people on their feet, making it more than just a folk track.
Notably, the bass line deserves recognition for its inviting tone and bouncy rhythm, driving the song forward with infectious energy. For those who follow our blog closely, you’ll be pleased to hear those familiar backing “ooooh” vocals we often praise. When all these elements come together, you’re left with a fantastic pick-me-up tune—perfect for those moments when you need a boost, whether it’s on your way home from work or during your morning commute.
