By now, my thing for soft, folky tunes and simple acoustic guitar chords must be clear. Give this song a minute of your time, and you won’t regret it.
Lizzy McAlpine has a rosy voice, similar to the whisper-like voices of Dodie and Birdy. And on top of her main vocals, the misty backup ones are insanely soothing. While cranking the volume up slightly louder, they ease you into the song, adding a key layer. They also match the song’s theme of someone fading away.
You’ll notice the simple yet sophisticated lyrics from the first verse: “Give me a minute / Just one will do / I’ll say goodbye, to gossamer skies / The city will move out of frame / But it’s still you who remains."
The young female songwriter feels wise beyond her years. Alpine keeps each verse short to the point and sweeter than sugar.
“Give Me A Minute” is the title track off the rising musician’s new album.
