[New Music]: Litany ft. Appleby – “Woman”

Screen Shot 2015-06-15 at 4.08.30 PM

“Woman,” a collaboration between British duo Litany and Chicago crooner Appleby, is a hearty treat that should add a certain helping of soul and wholesomeness to your Monday evening.

Though neither Litany nor Appleby have more than a handful of solo songs released to the public apiece, “Woman” feels wonderfully polished and daring at once. It’s somewhat formless—albeit intentionally so—and carries a reflective, self-questioning tone from start to finish. It’s about love and varying perspectives on it as Beth (of Litany) and Appleby do a bit of back and forth, the former’s airy, layered vocals and the latter’s gravelly tone pairing beautifully. Appleby shares his first memory of falling in love at the age of six, but closes out his verse with a curious phrase: “If you don’t love me, don’t tell me that,” suggesting that perhaps there’s a certain type of love, though one-sided, that simply cannot be destroyed.

Analysis aside, “Woman” is a repeat-worthy record in a lane of its own. We’re excited for whatever both Litany and Appleby have for us next. Listen below.
