Kristian Phillip Valentino is an American folk pop singer songwriter who I’ve featured a couple of times before on the blog. Previously I’ve been enthralled with his emotive style and storytelling lyrics, and his latest is no exception. It’s called Cold Hearted.
By Graeme Smith
Cold Hearted is about the end of love, told from the perspective of the one who has ended the relationship. It beautifully captures the doubt, guilt and anger of the situation through Kristian’s passionate and expressive vocals and a stripped-back electric guitar melody.
The track is the latest in a series of singles that explore the course of a relationship, taken from Kristian’s debut full-length album, due for release next month. You can take a listen to Cold Hearted below.
