mp3: "Hotel Room" - Captain

words: Sarah Hojsak

Tilda Lindsey refuses to let the world’s inevitable heaviness keep her down. The musician behind the Cornwall-based lo-fi folk project Captain, Lindsey fights the weight of uncertainty with a quiet persistence to find clarity through the fog. “Hotel Room” is the first song Captain has shared from the upcoming EP In Bloom Again, due out tomorrow on UK label Fox Food Records. The song’s steady guitar builds a dependable foundation for Captain’s musings – sometimes muted and muddled with breath-catching restraint, yet never letting go of the astute sharpness that cuts through the haze. “I can feel the urge to waste / Heavy head and heavier legs,” Lindsey sings in a hushed voice, a whispered contemplation that later gives way to the assured prediction that “Maybe I’ll stop doing as I’m told.”
