Song: We Can

Artist: Salute(the band)

Genre(s): Pop/Indie

As the dark piano chords echo in our ears and the lead singer’s deep voice kicks in melancholically, we are drawn in without our knowing, as if on a spell. The poignancy in the words and the pain in the vocals paint a vivid picture of underprivileged children. The backing vocals and the choir carry the song along beautifully, helped in large measure by the powerful strings. As the song moves towards a change in key, the emotions reach an all-new high – being the power ballad it is – and we have no option but to get immersed in it. With Poets of The Fall-like vocals, We Can sends across a strong message, while managing to impress with its inspiring music.
