Tainted Wedding bells ring throughout the brokenhearted new single “The Wedding” from James Holt. The Beatle Esque tune is a honeyed sentiment that conveys the emotion of seeing someone you love marry someone else. “I can hardly bear to watch it” sings Holt, regarding the betrayal. His description of such a heartbreak is filled with gloom, but his signature sunny guitar-playing offers a beacon of light. James Holt’s obscure lyricism makes the single a romantic juxtaposition. His ability to depict such emotions through his lyrics is a craft that sets him apart from the latter.
The delicate new single is a polished offering from Holt, and is further reason to why his songwriting abilities deserve to be championed.
