Spare and stark, awash in late Autumn rainy-day melancholy and with a soulful vocal at the center of it all. Vancouver’s Royal (neé Jodi Pederson), lays it bare on this solo acoustic version of a track off of her most recent record, Heart of Shadows, released last week.
The song explores a familiar theme of losing oneself in longing for another, a thread that runs through many of the songs on the record.
Here’s the studio version, which puts a distinct downtempo electronica spin on the song. Yet, that melancholy remains.
