British-born, Denmark-based songwriter Calming River, AKA Joshua Malcolm is about to follow his previous EP from 2015 with a new single, the fragile For The Echoes To See. The new song releases on May 26th.
The song deals with the instability of not living up to expectations inherent in modern life, "a feeling felt by many who struggle to see human values of care and empathy reflected in today’s world", as Calming River himself explains, and further confides: "The ethos of my work is to create challenging, artistic and meaningful work. On one level the music is deceptively simple - an acoustic guitar and vocal. But when analysed on another level, there is a distinguished complexity in the technical guitar playing, alternative song structures and reflective lyrics. My music is aimed to oppose an overly-produced and formulaic tide that washes many shores."
Indeed calming and indubitably enchanting, the official video for For The Echoes To See plays below.
