Soul Searching Beauty: Ward – “Slowfast”

Ward

“Slowfast”

My god, I love this guy’s voice.  As I’ve said before, he is this generation’s Richard Ashcroft.  Again, he and his band have come with an earwig of a song that has melody and words you’ll be singing all week, with lyrics that actually mean something.  Ward is Bass – Chris Gongora; Guitar – Mauricio Munguia; Vocals, Guitar – Ward; and Drums – Darren Edwards.  I have to admit that singers are honest in their lyrics are a passion of mine, especially when they rock n roll like Ward.  I love this quote from his bio:

his band delivers an uncanny blend of modern rock, Madchester shoegazing and classic post-punk, creating the perfect platform for Ward’s broad and passionate vocals.

This combination works so well.  You just have to play Pittsburgh.  We need you.

Check our the lyrics to “Slowfast”.

Father died now you can paint your face Mother dies you can keep your place However you want Some day you’ll die and I’ll die too And someone else will do whatever they do Wherever they want, Whenever they want What kind of man agrees to this? Take all his time and confidence? Still his time is leaving so It’s so so so slow but it Goes so so so fast Father died now you take his place Mother dies you can keep your place However you want Some day you’ll die and I’ll die too And everyone else will do whatever they do But everyone lost Everyone lost What kind of man agrees to this? Take all his time and confidence? Still love you say you’re so, You’re so so so slow but it Goes so so so fast Don’t want you feeling bad Don’t want you feeling bad I’ll be the way you were before I’ll be the son who wanted more I don’t think now, I just go go go I don’t think now, I just go go go What now? If I go go go, would you ask? What kind of man agrees to this? Take all his time and confidence? Still love you say you’re so, You’re so so so slow but it Goes so so so fast
