Vanessa Van Ness tests emotions with modern lullaby ‘The Muscle (Song for Kate)‘.
With perfect lyrical lines like “I’d follow you through cities, I’d sleep with you on planes”, she articulates love in a way that we can identify with on a grounded level. There is no pretension here, just honest emotion.
The simplicity of the song’s arrangement gives way to Van Ness’s astonishing vocal. A vocal that paints shades of pain, melancholy and passion.
It takes everything not to grasp your chest to help settle your heart and force that lump down in your throat.
