The energy is both soothing and a bit peppery, while the voice sounds to be on the fashionable side of timid: controlled, well-purposed, and perfectly blended into the song.

The feeling I get here is a bit Laura Marling, with some of the modern flavor of a Maggie Rogers. It starts out as a simple folk song, with the flourishes of fast fingers against guitar strings, and segues into an uptempo 4-on-the-floor with added percussion.

The energy is both soothing and a bit peppery, while the voice sounds to be on the fashionable side of timid: controlled, well-purposed, and perfectly blended into the song. The lyrics are what deliver the final experience, with a tone that comes across as wise and slightly magical:

“This someone made it clear to me that everything we do
is based upon a disregarded universal truth
even though we seem to have it all under control
there’s always something else that’s eating at your soul”— Vikki Gilmore

Vikki Gilmore is a singer-songwriter from Montreal. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
