Cold Wilson – Stay – Single Review

Cold Wilson is a USA based collaborative project centred around Jordan Decker which you can expect to hear much more of in short order.

Their first Studio release came out a few hours ago – Stay, which will form part of a forthcoming ten track LP.

An emotional introspective tale of unfolding ribbons of relationship turmoil. Stay has a chorus that will have you weeping into your coffee accompanied by a sparkling guitar chord progression which is seared into the mind and you just want to hear it on loop. But there is more to the song that the chorus and lyric, as the track which runs at just under three minutes takes the audience on a journey of water-painting.

The tempo of the piece gives the composition a fragility which adds to the context of the track and the instruments give the listener the sense they are listening to the mind whirring over loneliness and loss, whilst the percussion pulses like a palpitating heart.

The opening and closing half-line give Stay a realism and it is that brief rending lyric which, for me, really gives the piece its credence.
