In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to ‘Can’t We Pretend’ by Sorcha Richardson.
The opening swirl of strings sets a very different tone for ‘Can’t We Pretend’, the follow-up to last year’s electronic ‘Waking Life’. A lingering ballad about splitting your life between two cities, Sorcha Richardson’s latest offering is a tender one.
Still maintaining the realist lyrical core of her previous work, ‘Can’t We Pretend’ sees Richardson’s storytelling wrapped in texture, mood and atmosphere. Resulting in yet another gem from the very promising songwriter.
