Second Hand Poet – ‘Heartstrings’

Second Hand Poet Heartstrings album

Surrey-born singer-songwriter Second Hand Poet has shared new single ‘Heartstrings’. Opening with poignant Nick Cave-style atmospherics, the song veers into Keaton Henson-meets-Elliot Smith territory as Jamie reveals his innermost thoughts amidst intricate instrumentation: ‘It’s only dark when you’re not with me’. It’s a powerful 3 minutes and 20 seconds with evocative lyrics about emotions and how certain things can ‘melt me like ice cream’.
