Liam Singer
Words Make the Master
Hidden Shoal Recordings

"Words Make the Master" is the third single taken from Brooklyn Based chamber-pop experimentalist Liam Singer's delightful last year's release Dislocatia.

The wistful "Words Make the Master", is a near perfect late introduction to the charming musical world of Liam Singer. It opens gently with melancholy piano, the heavenly background vocals of Boxharp's Wendy Allen and longing strings. In the swirling motion of a bitter-sweet lost romance it turns into a stirring melodramatic conclusion.

As with all Singer's work it has a stringent, yet sweet, baroque poetic texture, which makes it utterly enchanting.

And as said about the album; Liam Singer simply makes the most beautiful melodies.
