Post-A-Day Week: It’s not often over a weekend that I’ll be sent enough songs to make up a week of posts. So, this week, I’ve decided to put up a post a day, as opposed to lumping them all into one confusing mess, as I am wont to do.
If you prefer the big mass posts, then let me know; but I think this might be easier to digest. Today’s aural treat is:
Jon Foreman – Behind Your Eyes
Better known as frontman for the group “Switchfoot”, Jon Foreman has recently taken some time off to record his solo release, “Fall And Winter”, which is supposed to be followed later this year by another album, titled “Spring and Summer”.
Given the title of the CD, “Fall & Winter” is a largely melancholic effort; reflective, searching songs. As with most of his prior work with Switchfoot, Foreman’s lyrics are often based in Christianity; as mentioned in my Need To Breathe post, however, don’t let this put you off.
Not only is this track, “Behind Your Eyes”, more poetic and whispering than his work with Switchfoot, it recalls shades of Sam Beam-like questioning. While I’m not a huge fan of his full-time band, I think that I might be intrigued by Jon Foreman’s solo stuff; that is, if this track is anything to go by. Time will tell.
