This song has a unique and honest style to it as lyrics tell a story and the choruses get bigger each time.
The single swells and sways and can really wash you away with it's soundscape.
As it plays on, guitars grow more intense and backing vocals begin to swoon.
"Been Here" is a wonderful and almost cinematic starting point for Yellow Branch and we can only hope to hear more from such a great young artist this year.
