Free Country – Throw My Voice (2020)

You probably remember Free Country from his sombre account of a rather depressing summer in ‘Narcan Summer’ last month. Now, Jason Ribadeneyra is back with his single ‘Throw My Voice’. It continues his penchant for confessional style singles with a dash of nostalgia thrown in. However, instead of the somewhat depressing vibes of ‘Narcan Summer’, it has a hint of fondness mixed in with the guilt.

The single thinks back on the loved ones who are no longer with us. A follow on from his last single, it directly references the passing of his brother and dances along the edges of memory and perception. Fondness and other happier emotions filter through the dim haze of emotions for an incredibly gripping tune.

‘Throw My Voice’ gets your attention with this wonderful folky strumming of an acoustic guitar. This sets a very gentle melody that is continued with some intricate plucking. There is a haziness to this melody that builds the impression of thinking back on a time gone by. The steady rhythm of the melody works wonders with Ribadeneyra’s vocals.

His performance continues the hazy vibe of the track. While carrying this tone, there is a sweetness to his performance and you can hear a fondness throughout the song. However, there are also times when his voice seems to crack under the weight of remembering those who are no longer with us. His vocals continue to fill you with emotion as you listen.

Free Country continues to leave you emotional with his confessional style and nostalgia drenched single ‘Throw My Voice’. Using his throaty vocals to enhance the hazy feeling of memories, he fills you with a sense of fondness, light and a dash of guilt.

    The song has dark passion. The music is catchy and kind of puts you in a trance. His voice and lyrics are smooth but full of emotion. I feel most modern music doesn’t do it for me. This song is an exception!

    This song is great, I’ve listened to it at least a dozen times now. I hope this gets pressed to vinyl I think it would sound awesome.
