The down pour of rain and sullen weather has put a bit of a moody spirit in some New Yorkers. Sure, we need a little rain. But sometimes too much is too much. Yet, one thing about this city and even this country is when depressing times gets us down, we always come out standing tall. But even so, the dark clouds can still thrive for a dismal attitude.
“Sweet Misery” by Amel Larrieux provides a soulful cusp of bluesy grooves. A smooth, gradual beat transcends throughout the tune creating an atmosphere for foot tapping movements. The grim tale of a cheating lover cooly encases the ears with the desire to relate, but empathize for. Larrieux uproots a crisp feel of disappointment filled with unwanted passion. This tale twirls a crestfallen torrent of dire emotions that speak to those of us who’ve been there, but look back in defined assurance of being stronger than ever before.
