When listening to Jens Lekman’s “Evening Prayer”, the word that describes it for us is “tenderness”.
And the song is very tender, with the 80’s Sit-Com vibe, wrapped and packaged gentle windswept calmness of Jens’ vocals. The ‘naked’ guitars and backup vocals just brings to the fore, the ‘honesty’ that is very evident.
The narrative lyrics give the depth and effervescent uplifting that is so cool about the song. Every part of the song is tactile and delicious.
Just is a joy to listen to, and what else can you ask for in an entertainment device, right?
