Phoenix Morby’s latest single Safest Place is very much on the folk side of country, the track features just his voice and an acoustic guitar with some little bits of electric guitar serving as a sort of “highlight” in places. Phoenix’s singing style is very reminiscent of Bob Dylan, again with that folk edge to it. It is deep, measured and quite soothing – which suits the feel of the song.
The lyrics use great imagery describing the feeling of being lost – “the roads you walk become crossed” “when the volcano erupts around you, your life is in a whirl” and the safest place in the world is in his arms – the singer is telling is that whenever we feel like we need some help, then he will be there ready to hold you to make you feel safe. Its not about making things better, just about being there to support.
You feel like the singer is singing about something he has experienced – and perhaps the song is coming from a personal experience, it sounds genuine both inside and outside the story being told.
The song is a warm soothing hug, perhaps quite needed at the moment.
Safest Place, the new single from Phoenix Morby is available on all platforms from 29 May
