I often find myself turning away from new music for being too simple. Songs that could do so much more; add some more instruments into the equation, add a bit more variation into the arrangement, and just generally make a more engaging listening experience by being more ambitious. That said, when simple songs work, they really work. They’re the kind of songs that take your breath away and make the world stand still. Songs like ‘Clean & Fair’, composed solely of elegant piano and crystalline vocals, fall upon your ears like whispered words of comfort from someone you hold dear. This latest graceful single from Lindsay Kay is a shining example of “less is more”. The accompanying video only further adds to the feeling of serenity and reflection, not only in the gorgeous natural splendour it touches upon, but also in how in finds beauty in the mundane and everyday. Songs like this seem too pure and rare for this world, which is all the more reason to cherish them.
