Break Ups - perhaps the "safest" form of grief there is - no-one actually dies or is maimed but yet - when you're going through them - safe isn't exactly the word that comes to mind.
What I like about this track is how we've all been there - how when you think you're out the other side you start to speak to your ex again and - in many cases get back together, but here - James deftly steers us away and puts an additional melancholy spin on the whole process.
Depression is still one of those things society doesn't really like to talk about - hell - the people dealing with it don't exactly like to broadcast it. And yet, all the data that we've accumulated from studies along the way say the best approach is through socializing, through contact, through talking about it and working it through.
Sometimes all you need is a bit of a space and a melancholy piano - hell - sometimes you don't even need the space - a pair of decent headphones can be world building - especially if the soundtrack comes from Simeon Walker.
The best bit about curating a Musicto playlist is when you come across a beautiful new track that you would otherwise never have heard. It's the beautifully measured voice that stands out in this track - the melody and subtle backing is reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel's version of "Scarborough Fair" but Rami's gorgeous tone takes this to a different place.
I don’t know about you - but when it comes to tracks like these - I totally become the singer - I get to feel what they feel and experience it as they do - I think most people do this in some way or another and it’s why songs are cool!
