Dutch singer Blaudzun helps us cure our 2017 hangover and refuel our motivation for 2018 with his new single “_Hey Now.” It’s the type of breathtaking ambient pop that flutters and bursts at the same time, reminiscent of old Coldplay. The keyboard taps and chords incessantly build up, constantly keeping you suspended in a mood-buoying state. “_Hey Now” feels like a kick to your consciousness where Blaudzun’s chest-pounding vocals refuels you with the reminder to live in the moment and never give up.
