This song, at least for me, is hauntingly beautiful. I love ben howard, but this song and this performance specifically highlight his voice and his performance so well.
Watching this video reminds me why music is such a force. It’s a condition, an affliction; in the best possible way.
Some of my friends would find this song too mellow and maybe depressing, but I can’t help but smile when I listen to it. Because for me it speaks with a voice that is so clear and loud.
I don’t believe in using words lightly. We’ve become way to cavalier with our words and we’ve forgotten the impact that one word has when it’s meaning is true and pure. That being said the word I choose to describe this song, and this performance of the song in particular, is… beautiful.
