STEVEN THAD, “Goodbye, Farewell”
Washington D.C. area pop/R&B talent Steven Thad quickly follows up his pensive “Do You Remember” with a new 5 song EP of originals, Mr. R&B, on which it’s included, along with another standout track, the brief but touching “Goodbye, Farewell”. Despite all of the good intentions in the relationship he’s singing about, in this song Steven sings with resignation about one that has completely ended, and in its simplicity you can sense the understandable isolation when he sings of his recurring thoughts about that person which probably won’t leave his head for a while yet. I enjoy Steven’s lo-fi approach to his songs, which are alternately upbeat and joyous, or quieter and ruminating. Be sure to check out the EP and his other songs while you can, most of which I’ve reviewed in these blog pages this year.
