TUNE James Holt - Contemplations
Contemplations has an angular quality, changing feel and mood quite suddenly. It is reminiscent of The Bends/OK Computer-era Radiohead with some Led Zeppelin thrown in for good measure. The drums are heavy, the vocals are rasped, the organ is filthy.
The character calls out and cries for help, but discovers that this will be a forever-answerless cry when he realises that everyone else is in the same position. The bridge section acts as a tonic to the bitter verses, accepting life as how it is while musically displaying psychedelic tendencies. Contemplations shows us the deepest thoughts of every man, it is James Holt at his darkest and most vulnerable.
