In August, I started listening to Leon Bridges’ music. There are many songs of his that I’ve taken a liking to, but the song below is one of the few that have made a lasting impression. This track is an alluring blend of Leon’s rich, blues-y vocals, a modern, minimalist music production and traditional guitar; it evokes the feeling of sitting on a beach on a quiet afternoon, deep in thought. I also connect a lot to the lyrics, particularly in the chorus, which feels almost as if I had written it myself.
Shout-out to Corinne for suggesting this talented artist back in the summer.
