She Bled - Rodney Branigan Single Review
There are a goodly number of young male singer/songwriters creating some splendid stuff in the folk world at the moment; John Smith, Kris Drever and Jim Moray being just three. Oh and Sam Cartertheres four. And With his new single She Bled Rodney Branigan makes a strong case for being added to this quartet.
The sound of a live audience and the simple beauty of his guitar lull you into a sense of staid familiarity, but then the lyrics kick in with the line Hed hit her one more time just for good measure and you know that we are into deeper and darker territory.
Juxtaposing the sweet tune and vocal delivery with a tale of domestic violence and loving dependency makes it all the more poignant. This really is an achingly sad song, wonderfully delivered.
More please Mr B.
