bittersweet (feat. krissy vanderwoude) – the churchhill garden. Super World Indie Tune Of The Day – 03.09.2018.
“You tell me
Never give all the heart
You’re afraid I’ll fall apart
How could I not fall, fall all over you?”
Indeed, and how could SWIT not fall head over heels in love with “bittersweet”? – as it is an incredibly beautiful song. Shimmering, echoing, multi-layered, all the usual adjectives apply. I generally prefer my pop tunes to come in at around 3 minutes but given the raw emotions on display here and the way the song builds and shifts like the tides pulled towards to the moon, well frankly Mr. Shankly I could listen to this forever. Krissy Vanderwoude’s vocals are wonderful, suffused with feeling and not a little sadness. One of my tunes of the year so far.
