Healing and melancholy drift through every word and pacing on this soft, calmly emotive piece from Brooklyn-based duo The Bergamot. An interestingly empathetic, gentle track that reflects Nathaniel Paul Hoff’s love towards his brother, “Bones” is a reinvigorating anthem that touches the soul and gives it respite from suffering.

The discreet breathing, the space that pervades the mood, the buildup, and the interpolation of electronic-folk euphony into the song’s very spine put the message on full display. “It’s hard to carry a burden/ If you don’t have any bones,” it goes. Such were the words Hoff told his brother following the latter’s discharge from rehab.

This track right here is a perfect example of an inspirational song that someone somewhere needs to hear now; a gem that even deserves a curtain call for being a personal letter to a brother first.

Watch the video for “Bones” below.

The Bergamot are Jillian Speece and Nathaniel Paul Hoff, a husband-and-wife duo from Brooklyn, New York.
