Metaphysical theories and speculations aside, time moves in one direction; it’s an intangible thing, always there–until you need more of it. Losing someone we love can be devastating, and dealing with that grief can take many forms. In her new single, “Bones & Gravity,” the title track to her forthcoming LP due out October 4th, Lizanne Knott uses songwriting to deal with the loss of a loved one.
“You can feel like you’re in a safe place with people you love and can create with, and then in a blink of an eye, it can all be taken away,” she explains. “We live in a transient world where things come and go, we live and die. When I had lost someone close to me, it almost felt like my spirit had gone somewhere with them, but gravity was keeping my body, my bones, imprisoned here. I had to find my balance again. When life gets too hard to cope, I write.”
Knott sings with a cello-laced otherworldly longing as she creates a yearning dreamlike atmosphere, reminiscing on circumstances surrounding her loss. She uses vivid imagery to evoke emotion and paints a portrait to process her pain. Powerful stuff.
