Sunday Morning - Anna Says
A surreal, psychedelic spirit takes hold of Sunday Morning’s otherworldly “Anna Says”. The beauty of the track makes it feel akin to a long-lost Twin Peaks song. Everything about it features a tremendous mystery behind it. Patience is of the utmost essence for they ensure that every single gesture matter, from the laid-back hit of the beat to the acid western twang of the guitar. Genres such as country, shoegaze, dream pop and more filter into the fray further adding depth to the power of his words. Vocals rest front and centre of it all from which all else flows. Lyrics further offer a bit of poetry into the proceedings ensuring that there is a kindness behind them.
Right from the beginning they make the atmosphere thick with anticipation. Nods to Joy Division’s tortured soul emerge while the piece gradually builds itself up. They do not rush things everything moves at its own distinct pace for mood is of the essence. Melodically rich, the way it all comes together makes it akin to a vast tapestry of sound, one that draws so much into its stream of consciousness quality. His voice has a perfect sense of reassurance, one that feels quite admirable to behold. Steady as it goes the song washes over the listener, plucking them right in the centre of this vast sea of sound. Everything about it stuns, and the finale feels particularly well-earned.
Sunday Morning explores a beautiful tenderness, ensuring that every moment of “Anna Says” matters.
