The chemistry between the members of S.S. Odyssey is undeniable. It is clear that this group has been playing music together well over a decade because of the flawless flow of their music. Their music sounds natural and smooth and is calming to the soul. S.S. Odyssey’s new song “Dear Theo” was inspired by the hundreds of letterswrote to his brother Theo. There is said to be over 900 letters. Although, the lyrics are drawn from an event that wasn’t personal to the songwriters, the vocal delivery still feels deeply personal and emotional to the point where it feels like it’s tugging on your heart. Perhaps the songwriters are relating to the content in Van Gogh’s letters. The song does indeed cover many universal topics that could be fitting to basically anyone’s life. “Dear Theo” is driven by an acoustic guitar, a peaceful sounding vocal and just enough percussion to carry the track. The song definitely begs to be listened to more than once to devour all of the beautiful lyrics. There is not a line in this song that just serves as filler. Each lyric is quite meaningful.

I am a big fan of Van Gogh, but, I never knew about this song. I will definitely listen to this song, but, beforehand, I would like to read the lyrics.
