Crawford Mack – “The Art of Losing You”


“The Art of Losing You” is a touching track from Crawford Mack. String adornments and emotive piano touches complement a yearning vocal tone. “Did I catch you in the moment? Did I call you just before you crossed the line?” Mack asks amidst the somber strings and piano. The final minute ushers in escalating, grandiose tones and brisker percussion, as Mack’s vocals rise to soaring heights. “The Art of Losing You” is a stellar track, marking what Mack considers to be “part of a new phase of my work,” since all his prior tracks were recorded through 2019.

Regarding the track, Mack says: “It’s a song about seeking closure as a relationship ends acrimoniously, partly inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray (Wilde) and The Book of Laughter and Forgetting (Milan Kundera).”

“The Art of Losing You” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of February 2021’ Spotify playlist.
