SONG PICK: Luca Wilding – Heartachers
“Heartachers” starts with tender fingerpicking, creating a gentle and beautiful backdrop for Luca Wilding‘s utterly amazing vocals. We cannot not listen to what he has to say, as “Heartachers” immediately puts us under a spell. Suddenly, roughly at the half-way mark, the song takes an unexpected turn: it swells and bubbles, intensifies with the addition of other instruments, and brings the feelings and the message to a fulminant closing.
The British singer/songwriter offers the following insight:
“Heartachers is about learning to let go of what was. It was meant as a kind of call to arms; an invocation of the strength it takes to overcome the mountains of the mind. It tells the simple story of trying to love someone through all their pain and despite their sadness.”
