Thin Lear – A Simple Phrase

It’s been almost a year since we featured American singer songwriter Thin Lear on York Calling. He’s back with new track A Simple Phrase.

By Graeme Smith

What I always like about Thin Lear’s music is the raw emotion of it all. A Simple Phrase starts with his vocals vulnerable and exposed before they are accompanied by a gentle piano melody, acoustic guitar and strings. A Simple Phrase feels a little bit nostalgic, perhaps even a little vaudeville at a stretch, but definitely bringing a style from the past to the light of the modern day.

The track will feature on Thin Lear’s debut album Wooden Cave which will be out 24 July. You can give it a listen below.
