CALMING RIVER is Joshua Malcolm and in this beautiful acoustic single ‘Haunted pt.1 (Fairytales)’, brings another turning of the chapter. The hauntingly enigmatic style of this single is a choreographed ‘dance’ on stringed instruments.
Close your eyes. Listen.
Imagine the interpretive dance, of that lone dancer, expressing the grief of hardship, and the comforting irony of being comfortable with the only friend that remain. The friend of ‘being alone’ and ‘scared’, warrants disgust. But in this twisted world, when exposed just long enough, your enemy becomes your ‘confidant’ and a ‘close friend’.
You’ll love her.
You’ll want her.
You’ll feel ill without her.
The pain is the freedom.
Freedom from the ills of the world. Insulated by the ills of your partnership.
Shielded and warm.
You chuckle at how life turns out sometimes.
