Emerson Snowe – You’re My Boy, Baby!

Die letzten Tage habe ich viel Emerson Snowe gehört. Wahrscheinlich hab ich einfach etwas länger gebraucht, den wundervollen Sound zu verstehen. Der aus Brisbane stammende Songwriter kreiert mit seinen Songs wie ‚Frankenstein‘ und eben das neue ‚You’re My Boy, Baby‘ ganz neue Klangwelten. Zwar ist der Sound der neuen Single positiv und klingt aufmunternd, dennoch behandelt er darin das Ende einer Langzeitbeziehung.

„I had just come out of a relationship a few days leading up to a small two week UK tour at the end of 2018. My ex-partner wanted to break it off, and I accepted it. I figured if that’s what they wanted, then there was no use in trying to change someone’s frame of mind when that has already made its way into it. Maybe that wasn’t the best way to go about it from my side, but mentally at that time I was already so exhausted because of other issues in my life. So the song is pretty literal, probably the most literal story there is from me at this point. The lyrics read like a private text message. Its about wanting the best for a partner, even though it didn’t work out with them, there is no doubt how significant they were in my life.“
