Moreton’s ‘See Yourself’ Is A Stunning Duet That Shines
Moreton’s ‘See Yourself’ is lofty, spacious and perfectly executed in a way that leaves its slow drawn lyrics lingering with you long after first listen. It also features none other than James Vincent McMorrow.
I first heard ‘See Yourself’ on Triple J Unearthed, racking the latest single from Byron Bay art-rock group Moreton into a playlist of other tracks to listen through while at work. The playlist rolled through and I forgot who was in it, as the songs gradually faded to grey noise. That is until the opening chords of See Yourself found their purchase. Crashing like waves across the first 8 bars of the track, they grip their listener with a warmth that lets you know something special is about to break.
The introduction of lead singer Georgia Potter’s vocal is immediately arresting yet elevating and when entwined with that of McMorrow’s truly beautiful. See Yourself is a showstopping song that demands your full attention.
A song of flaws, anxiety, depression and love. See Yourself is written in the moment of vulnerability that comes after having first opened up to a loved one about your depression. The insecurity of openness and not knowing how someone will respond to it. It is a cathartic listening experience that drives that openness of expression inwards. It is beautiful.
To hear an emerging artist stand toe to toe with one of the world’s most well renowned singer songwriters and produce a moment of such stunning flourish is something special. See Yourself is surely the start of something great for Moreton.
