The Weight is a track about a spiritual connection with oneself, in which one realises they cannot be what their soul isn’t – like people find out about making jobs or relationships ‘work’ at great personal cost. American singer-songwriter Rodney Eldridge experiences this Weight when he pursues a career and education path that disagrees with him fundamentally, and the emotional toll it takes on him. A uniquely profound experience enveloped in a down-tempo melodic indie folk track, Eldridge’s debut single is a genuinely touching one.
