The release of Spring Song from Dundee-based artist Theo Bleak marks a continuation of her series of seasonal-inspired singles. Following on from the darker, melancholic Winter Song released in December of last year, Theo Bleak emerges from the drudgery of the winter months and offers a sombre yet hopeful song reflecting on how spring brings a second chance.
In Theo Bleak’s own words:
“Spring Song is the next commentary on being depressed in the midst of an ecological collapse. I had never enjoyed spring growing up. It reminded me of moving high school when I was 13, the slightly longer evenings to fill when I had no friends. Although, as I left a seriously grim winter behind, the slight heat whilst sitting on my front step has been welcome. I’ve noticed how the colours at sunset are so unique to this time of year and further, so many beautiful aspects of a season we would be so foolish to lose. I’ve tried to capture that.”
Featuring Theo Bleak’s delicate, emotive vocals over lush acoustic guitar strums Spring Song is the perfect accompaniment to the spring months ahead.
