In a melancholic release that lays mellow in a delicate landscape of sounds, Irish indie-pop artist Brí opens up a captivating sonic realm in her new single ‘More Than‘. With an effortless vocal reminiscent of the elegance of Mazzy Star, Brí’s silky words cast a spell across this entire tune from the very moment it begins.
Despite a sweeping haunting aura, ‘More Than’ does not shy away from an idea of hopefulness which seems to lead Brí’s lyrical nature when she declares “I want more than this…” Brí seems to toss and turn with these demons for change, and she embodies her needs in every way as they catch up to her. It is the small things that add up and weigh heavy, as Brí depicts that even she finds trouble pretending to care about “the music in the air”. Smooth guitar riffs flutter and further carry Brí’s vision with just enough eagerness to reflect her will for metamorphosis. Additionally, with shuffling, dainty drums, the track feels continuously airborne in disposition.
Of the track, Brí explains:
“‘More Than’ is about craving more than the situation you currently find yourself in. It’s a place where passion and emptiness meet, the point where two conflicting paths overlap and where all that is cloudy becomes clear.”
With an earnest confession that is undeniably genuine and refreshingly raw in emotion, Brí’s ‘More Than’ is a captivating moment that motivates us all to follow that butterfly in our gut, out to the forest.
