In August, I reviewed the song “Everything is Alright” from the talented St. Louis-based singer/songwriter duo Neil McCloskey and Adam Hilligardt (see that review here). The guys have just released a lovely new single “Walk Away.” The rather melancholy song is more introspective and piano-driven, with gentle guitar and percussion adding depth to the track. It was recorded in St. Louis, and the mastering was done by Miles Showell at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London
The song seems to address a wasted or lost opportunity for love, as he watches her walk away and out of his life. The piano movements are simple but hauntingly beautiful, and Neil’s heartfelt vocals are sublime. Take a listen:
