Top Tracks: Simon Baum – Bridges

I think we can all agree that the world is a pretty scary place right now. It’s in these dark and uncertain times that we most need a voice of reassurance and solidarity. London-based singer/songwriter Simon Baum provides just that with his new single ‘Bridges’. It shares a message of how we need to embrace the things we have in common rather than shower scorn on our differences; that the only way you can fight the hate in this world is through love. As the saying goes, ‘speak up even if your voice shakes’, and somehow the sparse folky arrangement and Simon’s fragile and vulnerable vocals give so much more meaning to the song. Equally a personal message of hope, and a plea to all of humanityΒ to change, it is a lullaby to a scarred and divided world.
