Puma Blue – Only Trying 2 Tell U
Only Trying 2 Tell U by Puma Blue gave me goosebumps. The lake-like stillness in the ambiance paired with smoky, velvet vocals from singer from London create a fantastic ode to indie/soul. The arrangement reminds me of Irish singer, EDEN. Puma Blue is certainly someone you want to keep your ears and eyes out for in 2018.
This track reminds me of water in it’s effortless movement and serene atmosphere. This song is perfect to listen to while crying, appreciating, loving, merry making, romantically rowing a boat, proposing, reminiscing, staring off into a sunset, or walking on water.
The original single was released in 1 take, under Puma’s real name, Jacob Allen. His fans liked it so much, he had to re-record it professionally with Ben Baptie (Moses Sumney, Rex Orange County). The single is the first official release on the record label and club night Blue Flowers.
The lyrics are beautiful as well…a great way to start your week off. With some indie soul jazz.
“I’m terrified of the lies I’ve let swim into my head / Sometimes at night I talk to you even though you’re not there”
