Ivan Moult - "Carried Over Water"

I normally try to avoid just repeating how a press release describes a song or an artist's sound. It's pretty easy to parrot whatever they tell you it sounds like, and we try to give you a more personal touch here at If It's Too Loud... But sometimes the press release just nails it, and there's no way to avoid making the same comparison.

Such is the case with the latest single from Ivan Moult. It's being compared to both Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley, and there's no way I can describe "Carried Over Water" without doing the same. It's a heartbreakingly quiet song that will demand that you actually drop what you're doing and listen. Moult's voice combines the pain of Drake and the beauty of Buckley, so listen at your own peril. The entire album follows the path of a romantic relationship, from the joy of the beginning to the heartbreak of a bad break up.

You can watch the video for "Carried Over Water" below. Longest Shadow, the new album from Ivan Moult, will be out April 20 on Bubblewrap Collective. For more on Ivan Moult, follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
