I just watched this piece on human sex trafficking between the Czech Republic and England. It’s pretty depressing. There are elements in the song “Easy Heart” from Sebastian Fors that remind me of that piece. For instance the line…..”if the price is right, can I be yours tonight” delivered in a very Wilcoesque way seems to hint at this very idea (even if its unintentional).
I’ve been a booster of Sebastian Fors since I first wrote about him back in 2006 (here and here) but it’s been months since I’ve heard from him. The good news is he’s just back from a trip to Egypt and he has just released his new EP.
“Easy Heart” is the centerpiece with its dynamic shifts and its at times warbled vocals and at times screamed vocals. The story of a man with a whole lot of shit in his life hoping to escape his troubles and flee with the girl he loves is fairly rote, but here, with Sebastian’s emotive vocals and lyrics, it works wonders.
There are more songs from the new EP online at Sebastian’s MySpace and news of the EP’s official release should come soon.
