I’d like to describe this as one of the most unique tracks on this playlist…so far. I remember the moment I first heard Why Would I Let You Go, I was so caught up with the vocals. To me, it was so different and you can really hear the emotion in his voice.
The guitar, it sounded so simple because there were just a few plucks here and there and it didn’t really make much sense to me, but I was able to see the beauty in it and I like to think that’s what totally matters.
And what’s the song about, really? After numerous listens to that subtle, light, and gentle tone, it seems it’s about love, a love lost, or a love that’s slowly drifting away. The music video made me think the whole track is about the latter because of how it was explained through the symbolism of nature. But what do you think about it?
It has a lot going on, but it’s not heavy and this is why I think it’s perfect to listen to when you feel like taking a break– you’ll get immersed in this track.
What’s more, you’ve got to check out his live performance. The addition of the ensemble in the background makes the whole listening experience a melodic journey.
