Singer/songwriter Mauricio Yrivarren has had an eclectic music trajectory to say the least, first performing guitar at an early age in Peru and the US before making the leap to journey to Madrid. Here, he met producer Josemi Sánchez and began his latest musical project, Binary Drift. Following on from the debut 2019 album 'Pocket Tunes' things went a little quiet. However, he has returned with a string of new singles including his latest release 'Smile'.
The track has a very authentic and nostalgic approach to songwriting and is reminiscent of the more stripped back singles of the late 90s and early 00s from the likes of The Verve and Oasis. The raw acoustics are provided a really heartfelt warmth and soul by soothing strings and rich brass lines. All the while the vocals are honest; somehwat subtle in their melody but this just makes it all more endearing. The male amd female vocals intergate so smoothly and create a funky summer harmony that will blow any of your torubles away. ‘Smile’ aims to capture the excitement of living life at its fullest, without any fears, as long as you have love in your heart. It reminds you that happiness is always there for the taking!
