Song of the Day: Beside Myself
Today’s song is Beside Myself by Lights.
This is a single from Lights, an artist that needs to be far more well-known.
Her work is often ethereal, soothing, lyrically touching and well-constructed.
This, as of this posting, is her most recent single, and it is rather exceptional.
Body is aching. Dreaming and waking.
Don’t leave me waiting. Don’t leave me here.
The sound of this one really sticks with you. On repeat you hear all the subtleties.
Once the song picks up (key-change), the drums add a lot to the pace.
All of the lyrics flow well. It’s one of those songs that could loop without irritation.
There is this dense emotion that lingers alongside it all, and I quite like that.
