“You’re the captain of your life.”

“Let It Shine” by Admiral Freebee | Sticking with the European theme, we jump from Switzerland to Belgium. Admiral Freebee – the one-man project of Tom Van Laere – is no newbie, having released his eponymous debut back in 2003. He’s gone from there to supporting Neil Young. So, yes, this is less of a pop tune, and more of the sort that you hear when your cool uncle plays it. But I like this track, “Let It Shine”, off his upcoming album Wake Up and Dream. It’s easy to see why: the light nature, the horns, the rising build towards the end. It works quite nicely for a summer-y track… only here in the Philippines summer has long left us, and we’re transitioning from complaining about the sun to complaining about the rain. [NB]
