Sounds | Cat Cunning, Could Be Good


Opnieuw val ik voor een nummer van een artiest waar we eigenlijk aan voorbij zouden gaan (genregewijs). Could Be Good is weldegelijk (commerciële) pop, maar dan wel met diepgang, een zéér positieve boodschap (wat ook wel eens mag) en gezongen door een 'non-binary' zanger/acteur (damn, ik moet het nog onder de knie krijgen wat n-b personen betreft) met een prachtige stem en uitstraling. Misschien denk er nu iemand dat ik full of shit ben. Fine, maar luister dan wel ook eens naar een ouder nummer live gebracht (zie verder).


“Could Be Good is a portrait of the optimism that kept life rich for me this past crazy year. I wrote it in a swing of hope as I was falling in love during the pandemic and the lyrics are an intimate retelling of some of those special little moments. I love the simplicity of the chorus and would love for it to inspire hope and courage for others to take a risk. The personal intimacy of the lyric comes from moments in a relationship that are worth cementing in time for me. There was a lot of darkness in 2020, but this song is a snapshot of the light."
