Bless you my child, you were left out in the wild and I donâ€™t think I can come for you this time. Simplicity is everything in Jason Ward‘s song “Bless You”, and it does wonders for the playfully stinging nature of the tune; itâ€™s as if we can hear their smiles as they sing and send us away. Thereâ€™s nothing to get in our way here, only unassuming lyrics and guitar chords leaving us the freedom to sigh and breathe. Reminiscent of Bob Dylanâ€™s early songs of unapologetic dismissal, â€œBless Youâ€ is as dizzying and determined as a magic hour windshield glare. Thereâ€™s nothing treacherous here, only the leftover pieces of an unpleasant turn of events. A poetically disarming song, â€œBless Youâ€ is an alluring part of a brilliantly precise and controlled album sure to uncover something determinedly broken in all of us.
