I was introduced to singer-songwriter Podge Lane about three years ago and am still astounded by his unique sound. With each single, the Irish artist continues to fascinate me with his intoxicating music. Bold and rugged, but simultaneously sincere and sensitive, Podge Lane brings diverse concepts together in charming sonic masterpieces. The latest addition to his well-received repertoire is the single ‘Change In The Weather’.
Inspired by life in its entirety, Podge Lane’s music has a soft soothing to its gentle flow. Yet, while the arrangement is smooth, there is a vulnerability oozing from the melody and vocals. Following the track ‘Battle Wounds’, ‘Change In The Weather’ presents another single with strong Dylan tendencies. The stark nature of the guitar, piano and vocals combination enhances an intimate fragility. Yet, while the song has a minimalist soundscape, the organic instrumentation showcases a kaleidoscopic quality sending your soul soaring on a sonic cloud.
As I mentioned, Podge Lane is inspired by life in its entirety reflecting on the meaningful experiences in life. When speaking about ‘Change In The Weather’, Podge explains that “this song is about looking for signs in silly things which I’ve looked for a lot! Thinking back on the amount of times I’ve thought ‘if it’s raining out something bad is going to happen’, or if the sun was shining there was a bit of hope. We’re always fearing the worst and this is a song to say ‘let’s snap out of it’…”
Painfully honest, sincere and sentimental, Podge Lane, once again, hits your heart with his intriguing single ‘Change In The Weather’.
