Indie,Folk,Rock and Alternative: Joseph Arthur
The first Joseph Arthur song I heard was Honey and The Moon a nice easy going song, with great guitar picks.
But the song that got me "Hooked", was In The Sun, you can't help but listen, mesmerized by that awesome voice, lyrics and guitar.
"I pictured you in the sun, wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees, asking for sympathy
And being caught in between, all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in"
the first verse is enough to make you want to listen to the song over and over again.
Yeah, the song is a bit sad, but it has its own beauty, the way he talks about reconciliation and
the hopelessness of a floundering relationship, leaves one mesmerized. I love these lines in particular:
"I don't know anymore
What it's for
I'm not even sure
If there is anyone who is in the sun
Will you help me to understand
'Cause i been caught in between all I wish for and all I need
Maybe you're not even sure what it's for
Any more than me"
The imagery of this song is spell binding, and that is what makes Joseph Arthur a genuine artist.
