This is a sort of vaudeville soul, with a nod to the catalog of theater soundtracks with that exasperated energy of nervous love. Every element, every note, just ever so hesitant, precious, and enamoring, reminds me of Rufus Wainwright, the bard.

That theme of love is universal, and ever-changing: the trappings are different now, but the reticency is not, the push-pull of fear and and inspiration. This track by Finn Andrews captures that spirit well, with a beautiful natural piano and a crystalline falsetto, serving as the document of a life well-lived.

Finn Andrews is a British/New Zealand musician. He is the lead singer and songwriter of London-based band The Veils. This song is featured on our Rainy Day playlist.
