Bobby West - All My Years
Written as a sort of lullaby, the latest single All My Years by Scouse crooner Bobby West is a beautifully put together, moody and soulful lament, an apology for being a "miserable git".
Originally a poem, this tune reflects the classic components of a ballad, paired with a twinkling grace and romantic honesty that is truly endearing. The flawlessly velvety vocals, twinged with an ever so slight Americana lilt, are the piece that brings the track together.
Equal parts soft and self deprecating, and only in the beginning of his solo career, Bobby West has curated a sound for himself which artfully incorporates the classic with his own twist. For those who enjoy the deep and doomy stylings of the likes of Father John Misty, you'd be a fool not to have West on your radar.
