Henri Bardot - Giving Up



This is the voice I want to hear when I listen to Indie Ballads. I want to hear mournfulness. I want to hear soul. Portland's Henri Bardot is exposing his deepest feelings with this release. He spent well over a year writing his album in what appears to be a form of exile to dig deep into his heart and make the music he needed to get out of himself. This track is phenomenal. It's got so much depth and character to it. It's got some mileage on it and it's seen things. This isn't cookie cutter kitsch. It's quality and has body to it. I dig this a lot.
