Josh McGovern “Weight” – Listen

The new single from Brighton singer/songwriter Josh McGovern, ‘Weight’ is a beautifully haunting piece of dark alt-folk/Americana addressing mental health. The song features Josh’s vocals pairing with some rather lovely harmonies alongside lush string and brass sections, the sound being reminiscent of the songwriting work of Nick Cave, Jeff Buckley and Leonard Cohen. Josh says, “Weight is the most black and white thing I’ve ever written. It’s a stark survey of the end of love and my mental health – the bits no one wants to talk about. I’m not the best at talking about that stuff, but so many people struggle with the same situations. I think it’s important to have songs that people can relate to, I wouldn’t be half of who I am without the beautiful music of my peers.”
