Birding summons his woodland forest god in Crying and he is ready to break your heart. There’s something so soothing and heartbreaking with the way Birding has arranged every note in his latest release. The song is a gentle folk-rock number that swoops you up and rocks you with a magician’s touch. It leaves you feeling unsettled, as if someone came to your house and moved every single object by an inch. Everything feels familiar but off. For the longest time, men are told not to cry but Birding is here to say NO MORE!
From the first strum of the guitar to the final breath of the vocals, this song is a masterclass in musical emotion. The song starts off mellow, it sparkles like water under the sun and much like a stream, it ebbs and flows. He sings of home and everything around it, telling us that often times, home is a person. What happens when that person goes away? He becomes vulnerable with us and we can’t help but be vulnerable with him. There is power in tears and vulnerability. The strings in this track is a work of art, it starts off slow, easing us in and when it booms and blooms, it takes you by surprise. Reminding us that it’s our tour guide, showcasing Birding’s wonderful fluttering vocals with elegance.
A film that showcases vulnerability between men with great detail and tenderness in Beautiful Boy by Felix Van Groeningen. Crying would fit like a tailor made glove in this award winning film. While Crying is Birding’s first song on spotify, it’s clear he isn’t new to writing and performing. The song makes sure you know just how talented he is and the fact that there is craft and practice. He has been devotedly releasing singles this year on youtube. You must follow his work and give him the attention he deserves.
