I have a gift for you.

It's bittersweet. It's sharp and soft, husky and strong, smoky and sometimes shrill. It crawls into your eardrums and sneaks its way into your imagination.

So, there's this band, Patrick Watson. The band is named after their lead singer. I actually posted a song that Patrick Watson (the lead singer, not the whole band) performed with Cinematic Orchestra, but I never dug deeper into the music of Patrick Watson (the band, not just the singer) until now. Their sound and lyrics really creep me out because some of their words are frighteningly relevant to my recent past*, my present and maybe one day my future.

Also, they have really cool music videos. Let me share:

"Luscious Life"


*"The Great Escape"


"The Storm"


"Drifters"


He sounds so much like Jeff Buckley sometimes. It freaks me out a bit.

Also, if you've already heard him, I envy you. I wish I'd listened sooner.
