Today’s Indie: Blank Maps / Cold Specks
‘head for the heart, does it break / words may fall, the body remains’
This weekend has left me light on sleep and feeling a bit wary heading into the week ahead, but the peaceful sound of Cold Specks has come to the rescue, offering comfort against the Monday blues. I first heard of the Canadian-turned Londoner via her single, Winter Solstice, but have become equally bewitched with Blank Maps. Slow rolling piano leads into a gospel-like voice, met with sliding strings. The beginning sound reminds me of a Greg Laswell classic… enjoy both.
‘come on friends get up now / love is to be made’
