A bit of self-reflection, about life and meaning, in that universal language of open-world imagery. --- photo credit: Wes Frazier

The resonance here is from the clean electric guitar and stark vocal: the lonely pride in that solitary silhouette spills into our own hearts. What we have is a bit of self-reflection, about life and meaning, in that universal language of open-world imagery; the mortality, the vastness, the humility of the natural wild.

With a band sound not unlike Fleetwood Mac - a hook-heavy folk-rock - and that bold and dry lead vocal, we are led to the lyrical water, so that we may drink.

“Spring is fleeting
all nature competing
for sun, wind rain
and wide open space”— Timber

Shuttlecock, the latest single from Timber, is a reality check for us all: go get it. Life is short.

Timber is the Birmingham-based duo of Janet Simpson and Will Stewart. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
