What I like about folk music is that as you listen you can close your eyes and see the story unfollowed as it’s sung, it’s essentially a way to pass down family and local lore through the generations – Molly Malone, Eleanor Rigby, and so many more.
This song is no different. Katherine sings of an old house on a hill, lost in time – the reference to a pendulum swing which is the title of her new album out in February next year. There are sound effects too, the clock ticking and the crown being wound – it’s part of the song and I like this because it adds to the rhythm… what a delight! Love that.
Birmingham singer-songwriter Katherine Priddy has a new album coming out, like I mentioned, and she’s got quite a lot else to her name — a number one single on the official UK folk charts, selling out a headline tour, Folk Radio artist of the month, and much more.
