The emotive “Someday, Maybe” is a resonating new single from Sofi Gev, the solo project of American singer/songwriter Hannah Lovelady. The opening lyrics, emitting a sense of solitude within an old house, accompany a swelling soundscape as heart-tugging strings emerge.
Wintry piano pulses and sporadic string adornments combine with a reflective, melancholic vocal tone for a moving production throughout. “I count the trees to fall asleep,” the vocals ring out amidst particularly majestic strings, capturing the track’s power. “Someday, Maybe” is a riveting success.
The artist elaborates further on the track:
“‘Someday, Maybe’ is an exploration of my worst fear – losing a loved one. I think it might feel like the ground disappearing under your feet. You’re suspended in freefall, looking for a safe landing that never comes. A dusty hollowness permeates your house, so you step outside desperate for some fresh air, but the feeling follows you like a headache. Not knowing what happens after death, you wonder if you might hear from them again somehow, but you also feel ridiculous doing so. The worst kind of isolation.”
This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2022’ Spotify playlist.
