Can’t Hear It
Something Soothing for the Weekend
It is our absolute pleasure to bring you an altogether different update from Jericho.
Those who know about Becky’s “other” career will recognise the dreamy pop soundtrack. Some of us old enough to remember will hear shades of The Cocteau Twins, Camera Obscura and perhaps Altered Images. Others will sense a connection to Metronomy and Robyn. These may be homages. Lyys’ voice is mesmerising; her sound unique.
Can’t Hear It also offers a subtle message for our times. The gentle, soothing melodies contrast with poignant lyrics. As Becky’s (Lyys’) explains, the song “explores the feeling of not wanting to engage with the real world and face uncomfortable conversations… causing things to get swept under the carpet, papering over cracks, until everything escalates and becomes a total mess”.
But sometimes, we simply cannot hide.
Maybe the lockdown will encourage a number of us to realise longstanding dreams and explore parallel career paths.
In the meantime, have a safe weekend. Take care and, hopefully, keep well.
