Recwall - I'll Say

Recwall
I’ll Say

The first notes sparkle into life and Recwall immediately grab my interest. The motif is instant, but things get interesting when the second guitar wahs alongside with a counter-melody. Then the bass kicks in with a great run. Nice!

The verse comes in on top of all this, the vocal in the zone of Gavin Rossdale of Bush, deep and powerful. The chorus is a simpler affair, with guitars providing big open chords while the vocal moves up to provide a solid soaring line. There’s a moody solo with rhythmic stabs before a new build-up takes things into the third verse.

Stylistically, this song successfully puts a foot in grunge and post-grunge, definitely something in the zone of Pearl Jam and Bush. If Daisy Brain have their way, grunge is coming back. A return certainly gets my vote.

Listen to Recwall – ‘I’ll Say’.

I’ll Say Lyrics

I try to hold it but it never stays in place
I give it only everything that i can waste
If there were reasons I would write them in the sky
If I could change it well I certainly would try

I’ll say
Yes, I am coming home
I’ll say
Yes, everything is going to be alright

I try to own it but it isn’t up to me
I see it only when it’s right in front of me
Wish I could hide it with a little sleight of hand
I just wanna give you something you can understand

I’ll say
Yes, I am coming home
I’ll say
Yes, everything is going to be alright

What could it be that I won’t show
A little shelter from the cold
Just let us fly and never land
Just come with me now take my hand

I’ll say
Yes, I am coming home
I’ll say
Yes, everything is going to be alright
