His sets the stage during with opening lyrics “Was brought up in a small town / Where the flood lights flicker and the factories have closed down.”
His storytelling quality and vocals are mesmerising. He talks about his younger days, like a trip down memory lane. The details in his words say so much. With lines such as “Oh, I’m taking the long road / ‘Cause I wanna see the views / And, oh, I’m still walking as far as I can in these same old shoes” highlighting this gift. As for the vocals, they have a more free-flowing mature tone that feels so effortless.
Overall, “Looking Out To Sea” is yet another great song from an artist that keeps eclipsing his previous work.
