There’s no question that Max Bemis (Say Anything) and Sherri DuPree-Bemis (Eisley) are the cutest couple from the band world. And Max’s heart is not the only one being softened by their romance. The new Eisley song “One Last Song” from the Deep Space EP is immersed in the affection; from the lyrics to vocals, this song is one of the most genuine songs on the market – and just in time for Valentine’s Day.
While the song is around four minutes long, it has but one verse. The verse itself is a tranquil waltz: just the piano and guitar paired with DuPree’s ever-so-sweet voice luring you in and encompassing you in that feeling of innocent emotion. After the verse ends and the waltz fades out, some rainy-day drums and echoed guitar fade their way in and build up until the hauntingly beautiful choir-like vocals of the Eisley gals come harmonizing their way to the end.
The first half of the song is very much your typical Eisley: enchanting vocals and catchy melody coupled with dainty and elegant musicianship. Yet the final half of the song sounds like something very Coldplay-eque, in the sense that it still connects emotionally with the simplest techniques.
Eisley is a band that just keeps getting better, and “One Last Song” is proof as a beautiful melody that will charm you from the first note.
