This delicate dreamy track is one of those that you need to listen to quite a few times till you crack the initial surface and it starts to resonate. Hannigan's distinctive vocal is easily recognizable here and adds the unique feel to it. Right from the delicious opening piano tones, it brings the smell of spring, of the fresh air, new horizons, new expectations. The overall arrangement is more than fitting to the name of the ensemble that put this together. There's a warm feeling throughout and the delightful piano brings the vivid image of a mountain stream at the end of the song. This is an interesting piece of work on both sonic and visual level (see the video below).
