The project of Welsh songwriter Benji Tranter, Ski Lift offers all the endearing power-pop that you could ever desire. Joined by friends Elizabeth Walsh on bass and vocals, and Adam Fletcher on drums, together they create their own spin on nostalgic three-chord rock and roll – a refreshing yet familiar soundtrack to the highs and lows of day-to-day life. Now, following the uptempo energy of last year’s ‘Living The Dream’, they’re back with a stirring new single.
Written during the 2021 lockdown, and inspired by Tranter’s daily encounters in his local area of Croydon, ‘Double Yellow’ offers a twinkling slice of lilting indie-pop, building with a whirring splendour to an emotion-rich ode to slowing down. As the gentle, heartfelt passion of Walsh’s vocals intertwine with Tranter’s to create lush sweeping harmonies, scuzzy hooks ripple with a sparkling energy, oozing a comforting warmth.
