TRACK REVIEW: Old Sea Brigade “Love Brought Weight”

Old Sea Brigade

It’s a rainy Wednesday night the week leading up to Halloween. I sit in bed in a sparely decorated Brooklyn apartment. The cold is seeping through the grey cotton sheets, but the comforting voice of Old Sea Brigade make me feel a little bit warmer. Atlanta-based Old Sea Brigade is the product of musical artist Ben Cramer. His debut single, “Love Brought Weight” reflects the vibe and “inner potency” of his upcoming EP. Like a cold room washed out with one big florescent light, when what it needs is candles and a lamp, the heart can feel as sparse and frightening as an empty operating room in times of loneliness. With his ethereal and experimental take on folk rock, Old Sea Brigade sings and strums of that feeling when someone enters your heart and fills you with enough warmth that you don’t care about the room’s temperature, the too-bright light, or the cold rain outside. It’s a beautiful feeling, and a credit to Cramer’s artistry that he is able to express such a distinct human experience in such an equally beautiful song.
