Strummed acoustic guitar and that lone vocal sets a tone of stark desolation, until slowly more layers are added - a brushed snare, a subtle kick, trembling strings, and a simple piano counter-melody, which wash in and out of the song at various moments. Eventually, a layering of his husky vocal builds into an emotional climax, and then it's over ... and I press repeat.
