This is another random Spotify find, a sweet little song by an artist I don’t really know otherwise.
“Gray or Blue” by Jaymay
Album: Autumn Fallin’
Category: Recent-years favorites
Why it rocks:
Some songs seem to be playing like movies in my head, their stories vivid enough to imagine in visual detail (even if the details in the song itself are rather vague). And yes, this is one of those songs. It feels like a bittersweet indie romance and her singing is very evocative of the kind of mood you’d associate with those. The whole story is built upon the simple idea of two people avoiding each other’s eyes – I like simple ideas.
“And I know the shape of your hands because I watch ’em when you talk / And I know the shape of your body cause I watch it when you walk.”
The break before “time” in “but it’s taking time” and the immediate move into the next verse.
Best for: Coming up with love stories.
