From The Lingering Effects Of Disconnection, Daudi Matsiko shares 'Take Me Old' with Gigwise, a heart-aching exploration of the effect of time on relationships in dire straights.
Equal parts Ben Howard and The Microphones, the warming sound of analogue rustle slowly unfurls into a gliding string sections. The timbre of the instrumentation gives a rustic platform for Matsiko's piercing and endearing lyrics. The track exudes an intimacy that can only be witnessed from a distanced yet the affability remains in the universality of fear as an acting catalyst for appreciation and love.
Speaking about the track, Daudi said: "This song was written in two parts about 18 months apart. I’d been single for a while and just got a bit disheartened by all the messy relationships and baggage / short lived depressing nature of my past ones. I have a fair few insecurities about getting older, the idea that over time my mind could deteriorate to a point of no return."
