Sondre Lerche “Sentimentalist”

“Sentimentalist” is the second single off of Norwegian singer-songwriter Sondre Lerche’s upcoming album Please. Please sets out to trace the end of Lerche’s marriage and, after one listen, you can see “Sentimentalist” certainly fitting in as a powerful centerpiece to a heart-wrenching album. The song is lush and airy, full of sad strings and even sadder lyrics. Lerche has an impressive ability to have his voice be expressive without devolving into theatrics. It all builds to a lovely crescendo that’s strong and poignant enough to leave you excited for the full album. Hopefully the rest of Please will be as tasteful and honest.
