It almost feels silly to be writing about music at a time like this. It seems pretty trivial in the face of all the fear and uncertainty that has gripped the world. I imagine all the artists creating music at the moment feel much the same way, that their work seems frivolous and inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. It’s in times like this however that we need art most of all as a light to lead us through our dark days. Much like other art forms music provides an escape, but more than any other it also has an uncanny power to provide comfort. To remind us that we’re not alone in our struggles, and that there’s something better waiting on the other side. ‘Lighter Side Of Blue’, the latest track from Canadian singer/songwriter Zaac Pick, is a timely reminder of the solace that music brings us when we’re at our lowest. With a haunting folk arrangement, soothing vocals and a strangely prescient video that see Zaac drifting through serene empty streets, this track is the perfect companion to keep by your side and help guide you through the darkness.
