"Necessaries" is a lesson in patience. So often we relegate our music to background noise or hope for a musical instant that hooks us from the start, but "Necessaries" forces you to listen, rewards you for truly tuning in. The song from Matilda Mård is intoxicating in its dreaminess, beginning with a quiet strum of guitar, and a slow, hushed heartbeat of percussion. Mård is an understated presence, her vocals barely rising, a quiet whisper revealing her every emotion. In a desire to find out everything she could, Mård created this song, and while you may think you've figured out all its secrets from the start, "Necessaries" continues its slow burn, leading you further down a path that you should give your full attention to.
