- Whisper the World Away Larry Mindel 3:14
Whisper The World Away is the new single from singer-songwriter Larry Mindel, following on from his well-received debut album of December 2020, Love in Troubled Times.
Larry Mindel makes evocative music for the ages that tells affectionate stories about grown-up people and their place in a complex world. Drawing on folk traditions and jazz harmonies, Larry explores the common ground that unites us to help us make sense of our times.
The twists and turns of Larry’s music are rooted in his musical education in the traditional folk clubs of the South East of England, and the dynamic harmonic progressions of jazz in London’s Soho. Elements of Laura Marling, Steely Dan, Paul Simon come to mind, alongside others who span genres.
This is Larry’s first collaboration with Italian producer, Matteo Galesi, who has worked with Ten Fe, Omahrose, Frank Mada and other emerging artists. Hailing from Northern Italy, the huge skies and deep lakes of the region transfer sonically into a wide and rich tapestry of sound, heard to stunning effect on this track. Coupled with Mindel’s signature warm tenor vocal, his poetic lyrics, and unexpected changes in dynamics and time signature, Whisper The World Away is a captivating three-minute symphony.
On Whisper The World Away, the strings are contributed by multi-instrumentalist Joao Silva from Portugal, who is one half of the band Still Life. The video is by London film-maker, Rob Thom.
Whisper The World Away is concerned with moving into mature adulthood and contentment – welcoming responsibility, family life – and assured love. Being simultaneously apprehensive and excited by that.
Recorded in lockdown in the Winter and Spring of 2021, in London and Barcelona, the production team is working on further material, based on Mindel’s extensive unrecorded catalogue, and original new material.
