Leif Vollebekk – When the Subway Comes Above the Ground

There’s a certain sweetness about this Leif Vollebekk track that that mirrors its lyrics telling of nights with friends and the death of legend. The loose guitar anchors Vollebekk’s lofty vocal swings and serves as the through line that recalls the click-clack of wheels on tracks and gives way to the smooth glide of violin as it emerges from under the verse and chorus.
