I Lie Awake Every Night- James Vincent McMorrow
The creative genius that is James Vincent McMorrow has dropped his latest album We Move and it features a superb selection of tracks.
I’ve been cranking the first single release Rising Water for months and am still yet to tire of it, but in the last two weeks the song I Lie Awake Every Night has taken over as my favourite feature on this album.
McMorrow’s sound has developed a lot over his three albums, he’s obviously been experimenting a lot and working to find his true identity as a musician. This song is the perfect combination of the gentle ballads from Early in the Morning and his grooving electronica experiments in the bonus tracks on Post Tropical like When I Leave.
I Lie Awake Every Night cruises at the beginning and is lovely listening but it’s the chilling falsettos that take over in the bridge that give this song real oomph. His vocals are McMorrow’s real strength and paired with quality production it makes for magic listening.
