#songoftheday / REVIEW: EAVES: “TIMBER”

“Timber” is the latest track to be unleashed from Eaves’ debut EP, As Old As The Grave, and if you like melancholic singer/songwriter fare then you’re in for a real treat.  From the first few stark piano notes, it’s obvious that this is going to be a haunting number, and the emotional gravity is felt like a pile of rocks on your chest once he begins singing about the dreams we have and the jobs we settle for.  He’s like a cross between Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen, though his contemporary that immediately comes to mind is Ryan Adams.  What all three of these men have in common is an uncanny ability to tell stories with their lyrics in such an emotive way that the listener can’t help but feel the pain of their characters, something Eaves is equally adept at.
