Lefuturewave is a music blog based in the Netherlands. We feature emerging as well as established artists.
The lyrics of Tabea’s new single, Down the Coast, are so powerful because they capture the longing we all feel for freedom. We all want to discover and experience the world on our own terms. And Tabea makes us believe that this dream is possible, if we’re willing to put effort into it.
But even if we achieve this sense of freedom, it won’t be sustainable unless we maintain it with the right level of carefulness. It’s all too easy to let our guard down, and before we know it we’re right back in the same situation.
That’s why it’s so important to stay mindful and stay the course. We need to remember why we’re fighting for this sense of freedom in the first place, and keep that in mind every day. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s worth it.
Down the Coast features an airy instrumental accompaniment that complements Tabea’s voice well. It’s more than just a Folk song – it’s an iconic one. I’m fascinated by both the power and the directness of it.
