“Nothing Left To Say” is the second single from The Bittersweet Way’s upcoming album Presents, releasing on 11/3. The project is led by singer/songwriter Jedidiah Foster, who engrains influences like ’60s pop and ’90s shoegaze into his talent for original melodies. The Bittersweet Way is presently a trio, with Ehren Stonner (Treasurefruit, Quixote) and Jess Pruitt (Doctor Bones, Some Magical Animal) joining Foster.
“Nothing Left to Say” begins with a mellow bass line that permeates around a wistful glistening synth pad, with ensuing guitar twangs to follow. The vocals remind fondly of The Psychedelic Furs’ Richard Butler, with an emotive, understated quality to his voice — with a bit of Morrissey’s charisma thrown in for good measure. The track’s three minutes showcase melodic vocal charm and a nostalgic aesthetic that meshes twangy guitars with effervescent synths, with a chorus that amps things up just the right amount.
