In Ésk‘s soothing video for “Strawberry Cream Soda,” lead vocalist Karlo Corona eases us into the hot summer’s day with rhythm guitar and cool vocals. As he sings of the sweetest, sweetest thing, he is joined by lead guitarist Nathan Taylor. When the verse sets in, bass player Jake Gibbons graces the blissful mix with upright bass. The second chorus features two violins and a cello, played by Caitie White, Marcus Ojito, and Michelle Chen, respectively. Their melodies create the perfect escape, and you are pulled even further into Ésk’s world when the bridge brings a new tempo and different feel to the song. The ending culminates with the strings, in an accompaniment that is just as refreshing as the lyrics. The smooth editing and soft lighting brings a warmth to their words. As the winter sets in, cozy up to “Strawberry Cream Soda” and dream of sweeter summer days.
