The coordination of the camera angles, the simple block colors and warm wood-tones of the studio, and even the way her dress plays off the wall-art, create an exquisite and visually stunning live performance of this downtempo soul-jazz number. Caswell has a beautiful voice and she makes every note count. It's easy to get lost in her playful melodic sensibility: an easy falsetto, a lot of vocal scoops, and a deep vibrato.
This song covers the ground of interpersonal sacrifice, the little things we give away every day for love, or even the chance at love. There are many ways to end up alone. This slow-burn, piano-driven introspection does not disappoint and may serve as encouragement to stay connected and 'build that happy home.'
Caswell is a singer-songwriter based in London.
Music writer and podcaster.
