Lost in the Trees meshed with a little Hey Marseilles and a hint of Jeff Buckley for good measure
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE:
Big, grand, lush instruments will carry you away in a cascade of yearning
A song for every victim of unrequited love, “North” gives little hint that it’s about to take you from a quiet drum and guitar intro into a huge, grand piano, violin, laden song of longing and desire. The quiet segments only serve to emphasize the yearning in the song:“Why can’t you see that I need you?” singer Liam McCormick pleads driving the heartache deep as the song soars ever louder, only to eventually fall back into silence.
