Luxembourg singer-songwriter Bartlelby Delicate (not his real name we assume, although if it is wouldn’t that be something) has just released a new single, From Top to Toe, available now on all your usual streaming platforms.
After meeting German producer Taison (Lali Puna, Portmanteau) after travelling 1500km to play a show in Munich in which he happened to be Bartelby’s sound engineer that night, the two bonded and this is some of the first fruits of their collaborations. Moody synths and fidgety Electronics have found their way into Bartelby’s finger picked folk, as the melodies yearn and pull at the heartstrings.
Lyrically, the song tackles ruminating over past painful memories, with Bartelby adding “I’ve had some disconcerting experiences the last few years. The strange thing is that I struggle somehow to remember the exact origin of them but still those memories are haunting me. I think we are all constantly trying to repress things from our past and they come back from time to time fully present in front of us: from top to toe.”
