Heartfelt lyrics and vocal delivery. Warm and pristine production. Subtlety effected voice combined with minimal instrumentation make this track a simplistic moment of narrative.
First impressions of Little Things in Life reveal it to be a rough around the edges, but earnest work. Lyrically, it features an emotionally charged delivery of the singers’ ruminations. Its apparent that the vocal performance is not a technically skilled output. However, the heart of the song isn’t to be found there. From start to finish the work is authentically open and apparent about the narrators’ position.
The work leans heavily on the idea of retrospection. Its character is transparently fallible and human, and thereby relatable with a familiar reception. Simplistic story telling of this nature is easily attached and fits in the context of any genre.
Even the most abstracted and contrasting sounds to this style have embraced stripped back openness for a more touching output. The fragility of being musically exposed, no matter the surrounding context, brings forth an air of vulnerability that in turn emphasises the content of the lyricism.
The essence of this song’s arrangement is in its simplicity. An acoustic guitar and bass are all that supports the vocals. Again, staying minimal and undecorated, the instruments serve to reinforce the lead and add some harmonic content without embellishment. The acoustic bass was played by Steven Price, who also made created the accompanying video.
All in all, the track is a rough cut but honest output. The kind that means a lot to someone and as such is contextually a well-articulated piece of something more.
