Hudson Taylor – Care Review

In the build up to the release of their third EP, ‘Osea’, on 13 October, Irish Acoustic duo Hudson Taylor have treated us all to a brand new single in the form of ‘Care’.

With a sound that could have easily fit onto the tracklisting of their last EP, ‘Cinematic Lifestyle’, ‘Care’ is a lot more anthemic than some of the duo’s previous works. The track is composed of a simple drum beat and a gentle guitar line, with a strong vocal melody that prompts you to sing along after a couple of listens.

One of the charms of this track is how minimalistic it is: the instrumentation is very much in the background for this track, with the vocal melody being at the forefront. Though there is a lot of room for embellishments, this track features none on the recording. This allows your imagination to soar in the spaces; to begin wondering how the duo will perform this one live.

Coming in at just under three minutes, it’s a very real possibility that this track will slot into live sets as a way of bringing the audience more into the performance. But there is also a possibility that the band will dress it up with additional instrumentation and sections. This track is very much a live track; flexible, both musically and structurally, and as welcome at a festival as it would be in a club.

A great effort by the duo, one that will make a lot of people mark 13 October on their calendars.
