Hey baby I’ve been through this 10,000 times before/It won’t even give me the shivers…My sun will rise again!

How’s that for a break-up song? No time for tears in “Soarele Meu,” the latest single from Ana Patan. Instead, she leans deep into the pocket of a tight jazz combo for a mood that’s, well…sunny. The track sounds like a lazy Saturday afternoon beside the pool—green grass, blue sky, pool noodle fights, and putting on a brave face has never sounded like so much fun. Come for the lithe shuffle and slight swing, stay for the melodic guitar solo.
