The lyrics of this song take you back to a time and place where Heather Valley is lost and struggling. You can feel the sentimentality and sadness in her voice, and it’s easy to understand why this song is so emotionally stirring. Heather goes back and forth between childhood memories and the present, trying to make sense of everything that’s happened. While doing this, she realizes how unpredictable life can be. Things are always changing!
Through Fog illustrates the idea that we all have moments in our lives where we feel alone, especially at times of reflection. This causes us to feel isolated from the world. Due to this very reason, we need to find small comforts of solitude. Whether you’re reading a book, taking a walk or just sitting in silence, taking time for yourself can help you recharge your batteries. We believe that everyone should find some time to unwind.
With Heather Valley on vocals and guitar, Mike Brenner (Wild Pink, Magnolia Electric Co) on steel guitars, and Nimal Agalawatte (Basement Revolver) on clarinet and bass, this song sounds highly unusual. You’ll feel as if you are looking out the window and seeing the fog disappear.
