With a clear and unadorned vocal patina, Aaron Carroll Hodges quickly strikes a vocal affect that feels like goth-folk theater. As two sides of a coin, the vocal theme and the guitar work both build independently, adding layers and complexity at a roughly equal rate over the course of the song.
It's a lesson in purity of message: the quest for adequate communication, both to accommodate love and celebrate it, used as a vehicle to explore the vastness of self. The raw and personal nature of both the lyrics and the performance create a poignant and bittersweet finish. 'You' is the newest track Kin Hana has released from the album called Au Sable due out on August 24th via his own Black Meadow imprint.
