Nothing ever seems to last long enough. Each season seems so fleeting, passing by in an instant, and it often leaves me feeling desperate to get that time and those memories back. The endless rush ceases with a listen to beverly tender. For the EP’s few minutes of running time everything seems to fade away, and you’re taken by the hand into a world of spectacular beauty, a place where each moment is purposeful; a careful and precise unraveling.
Lord Mayor Makes 1,000 Speeches feels thoroughly pure - the strings, secrets and percussion feeling so subtle, yet so powerful all the same. Each track is unhurried, allowing for the peaceful instrumental backings and lovely, hushed melodies to develop and blossom into their own small piece of a much larger creation. In an era where we demand answers, e-mails and interaction in seconds, beverly tender forces us to wait - they force us to embrace our feelings and to explore theirs. Breathe in, breathe out, take your moment and hold on tight, don’t let this listen pass by too quickly.
