“To drain the whole sea…”

close up of match flame

There is something about this song. Singer Andrew Hozier-Byrne’s voice starts out like red wine, rich and full bodied, luring us in with sounds that echo the sentiment of a Mississippi funeral procession. The smooth yet solemn funeral tone rips open to one like open grieving. Hozier’s climatic passion breaks his smooth velvet voice into hoarse sandpaper.

Hozier could be someone to watch in 2014. So far, this single has reached number 2 in his native Ireland, and reached 19 on the Icelandic charts– and we all know those Icelanders have great musical intuition.

“Take Me to Church” by Hozier
