A Nashville-based musician and songwriter, Lydia Briggs has been an upcoming force in the music industry, having played the piano since five years of age- with a wistful, blues-influenced sound on her latest single, “Fall Back To You”.
The song is driven by a soft piano melody that immediately takes one back to a beautiful place in the mind that can only be described as a Bohemian way to describe emotional vulnerability. The rest of the ensemble keeps it pretty simple, with a core drum groove holding the song together, letting Lydia take centre stage on the vocals.
Lydia’s delivery is clean, and the processing is kept pure and minimal to really let the nuances of her voice shine through. Good harmonies stand out, and there is a good use of the stereo field, with the drumkit occupying the right places at the right times while managing to sound tight, and well-balanced. There are also atmospheric elements in the mix that add an extra layer to the melodrama that unfolds over the course of the song, with melodramatically written lyrics that invoke a layer of deep thought in the listener, making one really sit back and think about what Lydia’s singing here. All of the above is presented in a bouquet that remains simple and lucid enough to unwrap well on the go, retaining the simplicity native to her style of music.
Lydia references many complexes, hard-to-describe mental states that range from, in her words, “spinning cycles”, to “falling back” to the character being addressed in the song. Overall, it makes for a cathartic listen that brings one back to thinking about things that matter, and remove the superficial sugarcoat that poisons one’s view of the world. Check out here!
