Sounds | James Vincent McMorrow, Waiting


Op deze manier bevalt de Irse singer-songwriter ons wel: ingetogen, gitaar en stem, mooi nummer. Het is trouwens zijn stem die mijn aandacht trok: héél gevoelvol wat hees en een wat vrouwelijke touch. Op deze manier? Yep, want de andere (nieuwe) songs zijn me toch wat te lichtvoetig/soulpoppy.

“This last year has been a massive lesson in patience for all of us. But I don’t feel any more patient than I did before, in fact the opposite, I feel impatient. I had this album finished last year and then the world stopped and I had to stop. I remember sitting in my car crying after I heard that we’d be parking the work until 2021, and then I wrote Waiting. It’s a song about feeling sorry for myself, and then going home and talking to the one person in my life who understands just how awkward a fit all of this is for me, and who loves me for the actual human I am and not what I curate in order to feel like the person I need to be.”
