As the leaves turn from green to yellow and orange, the air becomes crisper and the days shorter–autumn is here. For some, this season brings a feeling of sadness, since it marks the end of summer. Singer-songwriter Kaiyah Mercedes offers an accurate description of this situation in her new single After Summer Ends.
The opening riff of the song is instantly infectious and provides a hint of how the rest of the track will be. The verses have a melancholy undertone that expresses the difficulty of leaving behind a summer love. The chorus sounds upbeat and poppy, and contains some solid harmonies.
Summer love is so unique because it’s carefree and fun. It’s easy to just let go and live in the moment. But when it comes to saying goodbye, that’s when the real pain sets in. Don’t forget the good times you shared together, and be grateful for the memories.
