Meghan Pulles feels like a forest fairy drawing you in with her saccharine voice in Coming Home. The single is a collaboration with Eric Bay. It exudes an earthly quality owed to her making literal connections to a motherland. The Neo Folk singer is one of a kind with her storytelling expertise enamouring you in with just her vocals and her words.
The song has an old school texture to it, very reminiscent of Edelweiss from “Sound of Music”. It is also a sweet Ode to their motherland. Meghan sings “Coming home, to a land that time forgot, I’m saving lives, from a world that is not.” The song is the embodiment of patriotic sentiment. It also feels intimate with minimal instrumentals, using just their voices and the words to push the song forward. All this also really drives home just how personal the idea of patriotism is to them. The soulful delivery sets a sense of urgency and authenticity, making it an unforgettable listen.
The dreamlike quality of the song that is rooted in real world conflict is a storytelling technique used through the years. Alice in Wonderland also uses similar themes of patriotism with brilliant cinematography and greenscreen. Not to mention, it is a star studded cast who deliver through and through. You can hear Coming Home as Alice realizes that her job here in Wonderland is done and it’s time to go home. Meghan Pulles has created a timeless contemporary that deeply resonates with the very fabric of the nation with top notch productions.
