“Blizzard Baby” is the kind of song that makes you want to throw up your hands and hit the open road. To no surprise, this is what the song all about. When making it, Inlet Sound‘s lead vocalist Michael Wexler had this to say: “For me, there are two sides to this song: a youthful sense of escape and an undertone of melancholy and loneliness.”
Right off the bat, the band set the tone with an airy opening verse. Shortly after, Wexler’s lighthearted vocals are backdropped by an acoustic guitar, drums and mandolin, amongst other things. The combination of these instruments, coupled with Wexler’s catchy, carefree lyrics give “Blizzard Baby” that contagious vibe that we all love to soak in. Though the title of this track hints at a cold, desolate tune, it is actually quite the contrary.
Through every inch of this song, summer tones permeate. In fact, the splendid, uptempo pace of this folk-rock piece serves as a perfect accompaniment to a camp fire or a friendly get together. However you decide to spend your summer this year, you can be sure that “Blizzard Baby” will be a welcome addition.
