Christian Wethered Returns With "La Madeleine"
Christian Wethered returns with a deepening and descriptive ambience that takes over your soul and lets you float along through its atmosphere and space.
"La Madeleine" is a swelling and picturesque progressive folk song that incorporates a dark edge and some swirling jams that haunt with Elliot SMith like changes that make the hairs on your arms stand up straight.
This track is a glass of whiskey at the end of a long night. Cigarette in hand, headphones on, alone.
There is this sad undertone to it and each verse is like a chapter in a book that all come through incredibly detailed.
The guitars and piano sound vast together and the strange desperation is strong as it hints to a few moments of just being in awe of someone.
Wethered has the ability to really take over and bring you to his world of black and white noir stories that seem to really get that aesthetic to stay with you for days and days.
The artist is no stranger to us as we have had the pleasure of reviewing another single and really have now had the opportunity to delve into his approach and style.
Wethered is a beautiful performer and songwriter that does it all with a passion that comes from somewhere deep down and is able to let it out in his own way and with such a personal and one on one feeling it's almost addictive.
There is plenty to soak in from Christian Wethered and his songs are meant to be listened to on repeat so you can get the full intensity and understanding of their meanings.
You can swim in his songs and decide when to stop at free will but it's hard to since the feeling of getting taken over by them is quite enjoyable.
So go swimming with Christian Wethered. Through the emotion and through the stories.
