We’ve been sent a lovely song by the Cairns singer and songwriter Jelly Oshen, born from an accidental melody writing moment – when he was just trying to warm his voice up.
“Getting Better originated from practicing my Do Re Me’s (scales) and became a melody that I decided to put lyrics to. The song is about being okay with change… I liked the premise of a song about deciding to improve rather than saying you already have”.
Getting Better has bright, soaring aspects in the chorus and just the right amount of shade in the verses and the resolution at the end. I have a big smile on my face after playing this just once. Instantly going to the ‘bad day’ playlist.
