Sombre, enchanting but entirely beautiful, Leftwich takes us down a bewildering path of human nature as an alcoholic addict tells us his tales of sobriety.
“It’s an observation on what it’s like to be a sober alcoholic addict a couple of years in. A whale is heavy to carry.
It’s gonna hurt you to carry it. But it’s also beautiful, and it’s a miracle to be able to carry all that at all.”
Beautiful harmonics of Cherry in Tacoma, Slipping Through My Fingers and Full Full Colour bring this fantastically calm and serene album to a disclosure of triumph and struggle – and is certainly worth the entire trawl through the 10-track listing.
