Week Starter – Crooner

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

There are opening lines that grab you and then there are opening lines that not only grab you but make you go “damn, now THAT is an opening line.” Such is “Voice of God” by Crooner, which starts with some simple acoustic guitar strumming before evocatively dropping “Woke up this morning to the voice of God / It sounded just like my neighbor’s shotgun.” Similar lyrics of ominousness are dropped throughout the song, balanced by the gentle melodic indie folk sounds of the group and a recurring line of “I think we’ll be alright.” It’s an enticing mix of light and dark tones, the sound of shrugging ones way through the end times, something we’ve all become too familiar with of late.
