Suzanne - Leonard Cohen


Song: Suzanne
Artist: Leonard Cohen
Album: Songs of Leonard Cohen


Suzanne's the song I crave on lonely, cold nights when the romantic in me craves for something less substantial than chocolate for the poetic soul.

Leonard Cohen has the most heartwarming voice, an acquired taste, deep and manly as he sails through his tune, accompanied by flecks of guitars and vocals, accentuating and balancing his depth and richness. Slow, his music slides through your spirit, leaving a certain feeling behind, beautiful and wholesome. Sparks fly through nerves as he ends his lines, words do this song little justice.

"You can spend the night beside her, and you know that she's half crazy, but that's why you want to be there."

Lyrics are Cohen's forte', plain gorgeous poetry about a woman, many would sell their soul to the Devil to be portrayed in such manner. Desire flickers between the lines, about Suzanne, the woman who touches his perfect body with her perfect mind. Settings described with such vividness, the song's surely to transport one to another world altogether, eyelids feeling as if opposite ends of the magnets are stuck on respective lashes... wanting to just close one's eyes and indulge.

That Year - Brandi Carlile


Song: That Year
Artist: Brandi Carlile
Album: Give Up The Ghost

"I was angry, I was a baptist, I was a daughter, I was wrong."

That Year. A memoir of a song, reflections of the past, the people, or rather one rather special person. Folk, done with a lovely falsetto, a light guitar tune and strings straining to be heard in the chorus, the song exudes melancholy in a memoriffic way.

Carlile lets her emotions play a tune of its own with her voice, tranquil and soft, letting the strums of the guitar serenade her words. Minimalist, simplistic, oozing sophistication with a touch of rustic, her story of That Year captures the mind and embeds itself in it.

An excellent songwriter and a poet, this song feels like a tribute to a once blue eyed, wild child who lost his gleam for life, taking the wrong leaps. Missing someone is never an easy feeling to digest. Missing them for 10 years, ignoring memories and later acceptance doesn't quite involve emotions that're simple to comprehend, but Carlile makes it feel so.

"Ten years I never spoke your name. Now it feels good to say that you're my friend again."

Single Of The Week : Crawl (Your Way Back Home)



Song: Crawl (Your Way Back Home)
Artists: The Seasonal Affair
Album: Homestretch

"This is how we make believe. Living life to chase our dreams."

Pop-punk flair with a hint of garage rock, Crawl strikes the perfect balance between punk rock and pop, delivering music that's energetic, catchy and everything in between.

Crawl (Your Way Back Home) is a post-apocalyptic relationship song, giving off a very friendly pop vibe with a steel-back rock sting. Energetic bass, great percussion work and a steady rhythm, with just enough flux to hold the attention, this tune crawls itself up the charts, ending up a personal favourite of mine among the rest in the album Homestretch.

The Seasonal Affair allows some great voice-play in this tune, though 'tis a tad overpowered by the instrumentals. Nonetheless, the vocals highlight the lyrics in a very cool, nonchalant manner that lets the song sail smoothly along the auditory nerves, making it a perfect appetiser of a song for a pop-hungry listener, who's into something a tad... fiesty. So...

"Listen up, listen up closely."

Cos' these guys definitely have something worth listening to.

Holes Inside - Joe Brooks


Song: Holes Inside
Artist: Joe Brooks
Album: A Reason To Swim


In a perfect world, Joe Brooks would be more famous than One Direction and Justin Bieber put together. I've got nothing against the both, they're just overrated for music ranging from bleh to mediocre. Joe Brooks, on the other hand, nails pop music to the bull's eye, he can sing and he isn't afraid to show those vocals out.

"Don't walk away from me." Brooks croons, hitting a lovely falsetto note that sends shivers down the spine. Shifting to his more deeper, husky vocals, he allows the light, catchy instrumentals to entwine themselves with his vocals, letting them shine through ever-so-slightly. One that you could listen to over and over, discovering new elements each time you click 'Replay'.

Holes Inside weds pop and alternative rock, and shows the world what a beautiful marriage this can end up, forever and always, 'till the world ends. Simplistic lyrics, about not walking away, waiting it out, persevering and holding on, Brooks lets the emotions in his voice to do the talking more than the words themselves. One'd say that he has the voice that anyone'd die to believe.

"But if we hold tight, shadows will be lost in the light. Oh, 'cause sometimes fate and your dreams will collide."





No Moon - Emmy Curl

Song: No Moon
Artist: Emmy Curl
Album: Birds Among The Lines


A unique blend of a personal, acoustic  flavour with a dreamy touch to it. This lady's voice adds a wonderful florescent colour to it to a sultry and raw environment that the music creates. The mood is so gratifying that you would want to sit and just think about the song the whole night. Blissful and sad at the same time. I'm totally ambivalent about this.


The guitar creates a sexy, femme fatale vibe that focuses all attention on her. The vocals add a little of Midas' Touch to the entire music. It's holistically depressing but strong. Heavenly in a way, she makes no effort in producing such a fine tune that brings out the earnest shine from her soul.


Delicately smooth music that is emblazoned right into your mind, it is a simple and intricate song with a broken down feel that makes no pretense with its message.

Dear Mr. President - Pink feat. Indigo Girls


Song: Dear Mr. President
Artists: Pink
Album: I'm Not Dead

Pink is someone I turn to when I feel a tantrum brewing in me, filled with raw desires of screaming and savagery, with little to no reservations. She's all that unconventional.

Dear Mr. President however, isn't quite her usual style, a soft, passionate ballad, serenaded with a guitar and vocals from the Indigo Girls. I s'pose it brought out a different side of Pink to the world, for I never knew she could carry softer ballads with such grace without killing the edgy character her voice usually holds.

"Dear Mr. President, come take a walk with me. Let's pretend we're just two people and you're not better than me."

The song's a letter to the president, unanswered questions regarding human values that seem to lack behind decisions made by him, or others under his responsibilities. From minimum wage to the bombings overseas, things are brought up over and over throughout the song, in the most open manner. Singing her heart out, she speaks her mind, giving this song a passionate spine, steeled with solid vocals.

"We're not dumb and we're not blind. They're all sitting in your cells while you pave the road to hell."

White Houses - Vanessa Carlton


Song: White Houses
Artist: Vanessa Carlton
Album: Harmonium

"My first... mistake."

White Houses stand in the midst of a girlish air surrounding it, full of familiar lines and angles many could relate to. Being not-so alone, in white houses, while spinning empty bottles with pretty-eyed boys girls would die to trust.

Well, she lived to tell her tale, so she didn't quite die, though something in her did.

The song starts off with a naive charm to it, the clear keys of the piano matching her high voice, a clean track with reminiscence flowing through it. Deceivingly simple, Carlton unravels the tale of a girl losing her innocence, giving away her virginity on a summer day, light strings following the the progression, moving over to a quicker beat as the climax nears... and then everything drops. And the speed's picked up in a while, though with a different note ringing through the syllables.

Diary-esque lyrics accompany the song, though this isn't your average teenage girl spill out one'd expect. There's depth, prose, rhyme, regrets and love, or something that feels like it igniting between the lines.


Starting off in a bungalow, five of them, spinning bottles, beer through the nose and summer blooming along. Then comes the red-shirted boy, sneaking onto leather cracked car seats, going too fast to taste the sweet, praying and surrendering. A hard to explain first time, rush of blood and a little bit of pain, a mistake made, rendering itself into a silly little wound that'll never mend. And she's gone, left with nothing but memories.

Interesting, no?

Forget You - Cee Lo Green


Song: Forget You
Artist: Cee Lo Green
Album: The Lady Killer


Attitude. That's what this tune's all about.

I'm not much for a colourful vocabulary, but I find the 'Forget You' with a 'F*** You' attitude plain fantabulous.

That devil-may-care attribute, a touch of humour, steady percussion-works, old-school Motown piano, bass instrumentals and the backup vocals just gets this tune all catchy and fun. 'Tis not a song you'd like to listen over and over, sink into, drown and die happy, though with the right mood raging in the head, the tune could get latched fast, with the chorus playin' over and over.

Cee Lo Green's high-pitched voice can get a tad wacky-pitchy in the second half when he starts 'Why-ing' with a hint of sad and regret for an ideal being botched up. Not a huge fan of this bit but one gets used to it, I s'pose. His unconventional lyrics, about not giving a damn to things that hasn't worked out, mentally gets one steeled to push away regret in a mild, funny way.

It's just so... nice saying things that doesn't make much sense to give you a certain hold and liberty over what you feel, do and believe. People might disagree, but...

"I'm like Forget You and Forget him too."

Quotables : Ingrid Michaelson


Artist: Ingrid Michaelson
Album: Human Again
Song: Ghost

"Do you know that I went down to the ground, landed on both my broken-hearted knees"

"It's like living in a bad dream, I keep trying to scream but my tongue has finally lost its sound."

"I've got to say goodbye to the pieces of me that have already died."

"I don't cry. I don't try anymore. I'm a ghost."



Song: How We Love

"We love to love when it fills up the room. But when it leaves we're cursing the stars."

"He tried to find someone else who knows, all the hurt a heart can hold."

"He went to ask her just to sit and stay, instead he watched as she walked away."

"I know a man who was afraid to love, to lay his heart on the bathroom rug. Drank his coffee from the same old mug."










Beethoven's 5 Secrets - The Piano Guys


Song: Beethoven's 5 Secrets
Artist: The Piano Guys
Album: The Piano Guys Hits Volume 1

Take Beethoven's 5th Symphony and add One Republic's Secrets to that. Throw in a cello and the American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic (Youth Orchestra) into that equation. You'll get magic.

,Magic, in the form of mesmerisingly addictive vibrations that waltz through your auditory canals, making you want to savour each beat as it passes electrical signals numbing all senses but the sound. 'Tis seriously, beautiful.

Steven Sharp Nelson, an amazing cellist and the man responsible for this joy of a music usually pushes all boundaries of the sounds a classical cello could make, often incorporating his vast knowledge in handling percussion and guitars into his music proves that he can make the cello weep for him, if he must.

Exhibiting mastery over his instruments render the music no need for any sort of lyrical accompaniment. The Piano Guys are someone you'd want to look out for if you're into classical instrumental pieces with a twist. Although they do have lyrical productions, I'd say screw lyrics and go instrumental with 'em. At instances when there's just so much to offer from the instrumentals, lyrics and vocals are overrated.

Mind, it might be hard to stop once you've started listening to these guys. Really hard.

Lucky - Jason Mraz ft. Colbie Caillat


Song: Lucky
Artists: Jason Mraz featuring Colbie Caillat
Album: We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things

"Do you hear me? I'm talking to you. Across the water, across the deep blue ocean.."

Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat have voices that're so in-sync the song just sinks smoothly creating the perfect ambiance for a slow evening, when you're missing a certain someone, or anyone in particular.

Starting off with nothing but rhythmic beats from the guitar and mellow voices, Lucky prances lightly a beautifully co-ordinated chorus, intertwining voices, giving the impression of one finishing the other's sentence. Both are gifted with laid-back, edgy-sexy vocals that's just fits right into the mood, complementing without much, if any clashes.

Mraz's and Caillat's lyrics are very much like dialogues put into a song, rhyming just oh-so-enough to give the song a rhythm. 'Tis a story about two being friends, being lovers, being apart and close in heart. Somewhat cheesy, but not too, a hint of flirting and quite a bit of gratitude, for the usual reasons.

"Everytime we say goodbye, I wish we had one more kiss, I'll wait for you, I promise you. I will."

Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down - Alicia Keys


Song: Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down
Artist: Alicia Keys
Album: The Element of Freedom

A soulful, dramatic tune that has been a longtime addiction of mine, Alicia Keys empowers with her soulful vocals, letting it reverberate long after it has subsided.

Keys uses little but the piano, touches of percussion and strings, letting her voice stay in the limelight during the chorus, though the music generally is stronger at every other instance, a seamless transition of vulnerability and strength. One of the few artists who truly understands the art of belting, Keys pulls off the song perfectly, giving the lyrics depth and definition, more importantly soul.

Empire State of Mind is all about New York and what it means to Alicia Keys, and I s'pose a whole lot of other people. There's grandeur and edge in the lyrics, dreams etched in between the lines.

"New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of. There's nothing you can't do."

Along with everything else, a little reality is added to the song, giving it a more complex air, all the more lovely.

"Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge, Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger."

A more than worthy tribute to the magnificent New York, this song is.

Bunny In A Bunny Suit - Simone White


Song: Bunny In A Bunny Suit
Artist: Simone White
Album: Yakiimo

Acoustic, mellow strums and plucks of the guitar paired with a voice that reminds one of crystals and rich caramel, 'tis hard not to adore Simone White like a kid would to sweet, bright things. Match made in heaven.

Bunny In A Bunny Suit is a cycle of one switching with the other for the spotlight. It starts off beautifully with the guitar, soft, stable strums which later collide beautifully with White's more contrasting higher voice, taking over the limelight. And then she pauses, giving the ears a second to savour the depth in the guitar b'fore she sweeps the attention with her vocals.

White plays with the pitches and tone with such careless precision, some high notes left to last long, whispers  gently led into the tune, giving it a quirky, secretive tone, matching her lyrics. This song addresses the age-old question of "Who am I?" on instances when one doesn't feel like 'me, myself and I', hence wearing a suit of him or herself.

"Pretending to be myself again, imitating the person I've always been. Legally changing my name to my name, and making believe I'm exactly the same."

Light but deep, Bunny In A Bunny Suit is a song to keep.

Sail - Awolnation

Song: Sail
Artist: Awolnation
Album: Megalithic Symphony


Grungy and heavy, this song pulls out the strong, rough emotions like an elastic waistband. It provides a gratifying experience somehow with the trumping vocals. It lurks darkly into the depths of man's mind. An intriguing suspense is created by the slow, steady electronic tunes and the bass beats.


The voice is gruff and tough and successfully portrays a state of mind nearing a border between insanity and anger. The 'oohs' create the perfect aesthetics or dressing for this song, further amplifying and distancing the starkly different sounds in the music. The multiple parts work well in tandem with each other.


Altogether, it is audibly different and catches the curiosity of one with ease.

Don't Tell Me That It's Over - Amy Macdonald

Song: Don't Tell Me That It's Over
Artist: Amy Macdonald
Album: A Curious Thing


A song that is both alarming and endearing. It has a theme of a terrible foreboding happening soon. It is epic and grandiose in its structure, packing a powerful punch with every verse sung. The introduction and choruses have a powerful tension, as if enforcing her every lyrics with a terrible concern.


The voice has a deep, gritty tone that runs deeply down the heart. The high notes sung are raw with ambiguity and deep worries. It is ambitious and audacious with all the heavy electric guitar streams and wonderfully balanced and light piano touches. The lyrics speak of a stressing but ambivalent matter and deeply suit the song with its dramatic flow.


It is magnanimous and burning with extreme passion. All the different highlights create a well composed and defined song that speaks and tears through urgently with its message.

Music Video : Chasing Pavements


Song: Chasing Pavements
Artist: Adele
Album: 19

Dancing is one of the most physical and the most mesmerising art out there. While 'tis incorporated a whole lot in music videos, often they're just clean, elegant moves rather than something choreographed to relate exclusively to the song. This is one that has both clean, elegant moves, relates well to the song and is unique to boot.

Chasing Pavements is an awesome song, but I guess 'tis a huge favourite of mine because I really do like the video. It starts off with Adele's stunning face(her colouring is to-die-for) and moves on to two, s'posed corpses from a car crash, re-enacting their relationship, from the time they met(he returned her fallen scarf) to instances when they were apart(she was holding hands with a shadow) and the make-up(dancing together again).

'Tis interesting to watch different elements working in the choreography, from the shadows of the spectators around, the direction the stretcher's are wheeled to Adele walking around, spectating. 'Tis just... mesmerising, the way one falls to the other, working its way to the climax where everyone dances, as nonsensical that might seem.

The choreography, although seemingly simple, is quite a feat being done on the floor, especially since floor dancing isn't quite gravity's best friend. Do watch the video and give it a shot, floor dancing.

Beautiful Boyz - CocoRosie

Song: Beautiful Boyz
Artist: CocoRosie
Album: La maison de mon rĂªve

The solemnity in this song is unparalleled and unbounded. The chilling fear and depression is terrifying. It has the feeling of insanity you'd get in an asylum. It's a stake in the heart, a pain transcending other emotions. The song sinks in slowly and steadily, ensuring one would get a thorough portion of its forlorn sadness.
Bianca's voice is a deadly harbinger, a messenger detailing harrowing experiences. Her pain can be felt throughout the whole song. Its momentously sorrowful with the downtrodden male voice that spells out the deep dark depth of the mind. The melancholic mood is brought into an otherworldly dimension with such demented  singing.

This song is terribly bewitching. A spell to twist and turn the most delicate thoughts. Such is its brilliance that it sets the bar for sorrow.

Regresa a Mi - Il Divo


Song: Regresa A Mi
Artist: Il Divo
Album: Il Divo


Grammy award winning song, originally sung by Toni Braxton, this song was covered by Il Divo in Spanish. Although there's little prominent difference between the two versions apart from the vocals and the language. I s'pose, in my case, Regresa A Mi is best enjoyed in Spanish. I don't understand Spanish.

Regresa A Mi(Unbreak My Heart) is a lovely, melodious song which starts off with soft notes from the classical guitar. These light strums are just so gorgeous, one could just forget the glory of every other noise and sink in awe. Add faint notes from the strings and there's just this blissful harmony between all that auditory vibrations, and having four extremely talented vocalists complementing the instruments... 'tis impossible not to like.

I'm not particularly fond of the lyrics, hence I s'pose I'm better off not with a version where I can make up the meaning as I go, relating the tune to something I feel at any particular instance. Never liking 'Unbreak My Heart' in English, simply because it felt too much of a plead-beg-remorse fluffball, not understanding Spanish is a blessing in disguise.

"Regresa a mi, Quiereme otra vez, Borra el dolor,que al irte me dio cuando te separaste de mi."

Translation: "There's no better way, to spend my day, than to sit down with books, tea and gummy bears"

Perfect.

Single Of The Week : Live Your Life


Song: Live Your Life
Artist: Yuna
Album: Yuna

Hints of strings and percussion, her jazzy, deep vocals delivers a sense of comfort in the music, a sense of warmth on a cold day eluding the mind. Good stuff.

"Live if you really want to."

A song about choices, dreaming, hope and living. In a time where identity crisis' seems to plague every other man, this tune sings falling in love while dealing with it. Slow, light beats and an equally light rhythm establishes the base for Yuna's softer croons, giving off a very jazz-blues vibe, tied together with an indie feel.

One of my 'unwinding' song, 'tis perfect for the lazy, slow nights when you'd want nothing more than to enjoy a good book or spend some quality time studying the ceiling. Simple tunes that could leave thoughts unobstructed, none too heavy for the head, Live Your Life possess enough character and charm to make you want to go on listening to it and perhaps move your feet to match the beat, if it strikes your fancy.






(Live Your Life can be downloaded free from the link http://www.amazon.com/Live-Your-Life/dp/B007U3TA1K/ref=zg_bs_digital-music-track_4)

Heavy - Holly Brook


Song: Heavy
Artist: Holly Brook
Album: Like Blood Like Honey

"Underneath the corset of your mystery; Piece by piece undress you from your history. I'm sleeping with seclusion in sweet disarray."

Put lyrics like that with one of the most sexiest voices on the planet and one'd expect nothing less than auditory bliss. I've yet to listen to Brook sing much of a lively, happy tune(Brook is Skylar Grey) and I s'pose this is as close as it goes, when compared to the rest of her more heavier, darker tunes. A refreshing change.

There's an interesting array of instruments used to compliment Brook's vocals, none overpowering as she adapts her pitch to the different rhythm and beats. It begins, smoothly with the piano somewhat dominating the tune, her voice low with an edge, before rendering into a trailed pause and working with lighter instrumentals(hints of piano and strings) as well back-up vocals, delivering a very different air and atmosphere from how things first started.

I adore the way Brook keeps effortless control over her voice, getting them to rise and fall at the precisest instance, adding layers to the lyrics and granting them character and soul, different from what they might imply without the tune or her voice. A beautiful tune from the amazing Holly Brook a.k.a Skylar Grey




Skinny Love - Bon Iver


Song: Skinny Love
Artist: Bon Iver
Album: For Emma, Forever Ago

Skinny Love's grown onto me, I s'pose. 'Tis so different, very indie folk, acoustic and with Justin Vernon's ethereal falsettos and unconventional-ish vocals, 'tis stunning.

For a song made with nothing but a good microphone, recording instruments and a guitar, this song is screams original, organic and quirky, perhaps? There's that 'Ma ma ma, mamama, mama" and the whoops, a   lovely bit of pleading-esque voice at the beginning and an extremely simplistic, clean guitar-play.

Vernon's lyrics have depth, it means something different to every other man. One'd say that you need to be in and out of love to understand his songs, but I think his music gets you to go through that roller coaster ride within minutes. There's an interesting of words in this song, that I s'pose intrigues and fascinates me, being one for unconventionally brilliant lyrics.

"C'mon Skinny Love, what happened here? Suckle on the hope in light brassiere."

Quirky, no?




Let's Just Fall In Love Again - Jason Castro

Song: Let's Just Fall In Love Again
Artist: Jason Castro
Album: Jason Castro


Simple, furtive and raw, this song is a song of love for youths. It's a heartfelt lovable piece dedicated to the sweetest of girls. A typical everyday song as one would suppose. But it has its charms. Its high notes are a dear to hear. Somehow beguiling it is.


The lyrics are pretty straightforward. Guy likes girl and wants to fall in love with her. Jason's voice is the main factor and a plus itself in this song. The relaxed rhythm makes this song seem to float gently above the clouds.


Overall, the song in its total is fine. Probably above average but it has a somewhat distinct quality that makes it stand out.

Manic Depression - Emilie Autumn


Song: Manic Depression
Artist: Emilie Autumn
Album: Laced/Unlaced

Gritty and wicked, this song drives adrenaline and other tension inducing hormones into the body. It gives a whole new perspective on manic depression; its rock and multi-spectrum sides. The song sparks intuition and evokes non-conformity and breaking out of the boundaries. Wholly destructive and noisy, but in a good way.

Creating a repeating pattern of sharp and thrilling sounds, this song forms a sharp epicness and anxiety. It's dauntingly chilling to the goose bumps with the potential to sterilize the entire body. Powerful clanking of metals and awe inducing electric sounds. 

Altogether the sounds create an awesome, techno-infused goodness.

Sunday, June 3, 2012

Burnout - Widowspeak

Song: Burnout
Artist: Widowspeak
Album: Harsh Realm/Burnout

A bluesy, dream-like tune brought upon one lazy evening, this song evokes such a vicarious moment seeing the sun set with all its vibrant crimson and violet colours. It has a laid back demeanour and a softness that creates a sullen and melancholic mood that thrives on a grieving environment that lacks positive energy.

The voice is amicably lazy and sultry. The music creates a slow and slacking tempo that emulates the experience of a lonely, tiring evening. Its depressing aura has a sulking effect that one can generally relate to coming back from work and feeling as if everything had no meaning. It also permeates an empathy towards your personal self.

A good listen to those wanting to go low into their emotions. 

Saturday, June 2, 2012

Words - Skylar Grey


Song: Words
Artist: Skylar Grey
Album: The Buried Sessions of Skylar Grey


Skylar Grey has her character scrawled across each vibration she breathes, neither smooth nor husky, with an echoing quality to it. Her voice isn't gorgeous, beautiful or anything but 'tis just so.. sexy.

A mezzo-soprano with a dark, gothic-esque air to it, she takes away the soul from soft-rock and gives it a melancholic makeover. Her head voice adds lovely texture to the tune, the rough-edgy feel, giving a lopsided balance to the smooth, rich piano-strings instrumentals. Opting for a tambourine instead of a drum to set the beat, plays down the song a tad, which melds the different layers in the song in an unconventional way. And unconventional is good.

"So many questions, But I'm talking to myself."

Contemporary poetry marries a semi-intoxicated lyricist in these lines, for there's quite a bit of repetition and the song is rather long-ish at 5 minutes. Words(the song) has depth to it, regret braided along the lines and the emotions in the song are exhibited with a certain recklessness, bringing out the different ranges in Grey's vocals.

'Tis just a beautiful song and what can I say? I'm hooked.





Nothing Like You And I - The Perishers

Song: Nothing Like You And I
Artist: The Perishers
Album: Let There Be Morning


A slow and cool song you'd expect to hear when you wake up in the early morning and witness the rising sun. One can embrace the light with relative comfort and conformity. A moody relaxation is deep set within the song and one wades through the song as if it were a river or a lake, devoid of intensity or volatility. A certainty is apparent in the song.


The male artist has a young, earthy voice that is earnest and relaxed. The song has a soft touch in the heart. One feels confident and secure, like getting a warm hug by a close friend or family. It has a closeness and simplicity that one can just easily lay off and sleep with this song playing in their heads. Its slow pace makes space for aftertastes between lines.


The song has a quality of earthiness that connects well to the audience. Beautiful.
