Single Review – Beck – Dear Life

In a career spanning over 30 years, Beck has already explored a kaleidoscope of different styles and genres. With the release of Dear Life, however, the upcoming album Colors points to an album more animated than those of days past. With a jovial piano – which has rightfully been compared to Beatles numbers – to carry the upbeat, sometimes awkward lyric choices, Beck delivers a vivid yet chilled pop delight. The track is somewhere in between the cheeky and thumping Wow, and Morning Phase’s restrained and somewhat solemn embellishments; this more relaxed take on pop fits better with Beck’s earthy vocals and is a truly summery and wholesome accomplishment.
