Have you ever put your heart and soul into something for years and yet it didn’t work out?
If so, this track’s for you.
The frustration I’m referring to is not the angry, cheated emotion – it is the sad one. The frustration of not getting what you want - to be frustrated in one’s efforts.
I wasn't aware of Sophie's work until Nicole introduced me to this track for the Music to Grieve to playlist - I immediately fell in love. Melancholy piano - not overdone or flashy, just a simple theme that you can hear her breathe life into - and then the cello arrives - and it's beautiful!
It's the birdsong and background sounds that get you at the beginning - the scrunching through gravel accompanied by the sparsest piano chords and the whole mood is set.
