Soothing and calming, uplifting and inspiring. That’s how we would describe Joe Pope’s latest release, the wonderful acoustic gem ‘The Window’. Before we dive into the Atlanta’s talent artistic universe, let’s take a step back. We are aware that in this day and age, where electronica reigns supreme, a busy and punchy production is preferred by most. Even so, we know for a fact there’s a whole group of people out there that don’t shy away from the simplicity and minimalism of an acoustic track. Perhaps it is the lack of instruments, allowing the emotion and feeling of the track to take center stage. Perhaps is the raw feeling of a clear voice, hitting you right in the chest.
Pope knows all that, and that’s why he doesn’t refrain from sharing his personal storytelling with us. Offering a slice of his artistry and creativity, he’s able to connect with listeners and drag them into introspective lyrical content, a musical journey you won’t regret taking.
Featuring Lucia on backing vocals and Yoed Nir on the Cello, ‘The Window’ is a fitting glimpse into Pope’s refined and nuanced sonic qualities. His acoustic guitar is light and melodious, supporting the main topline wherever it might go. Small percussions complement the picture. Lyrically, the song reflects on our most intimate moments. As explained by Pope: “The bedroom window is a place that sees the love inside your home, and the passing of the seasons. It’s a deeply personal portal that most never really think about, but to me is a symbol of the endurance of love, safely, family, and passion.”
