SHUFFLING CARDS by Lucas Green⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

«Shuffling Cards» is a small acoustic song in the best sense. Green’s voice is slightly trembling and the mix instrumentation stripped back. Fragile, plucked guitar and minimal arrangement suit his wavering voice, which conveys the lyrics of the song in an incredible way.

Though spare, «Shuffling Cards» sounds unprompted rather than unfinished — hearing it feels like eavesdropping on a neighbor who’s singing behind the wall just for you alone. A neighbor isn’t begging us to tag along. His voice is uneasy and hushed, like he’s worried we might hear him. But the whole house wants to sit next to him, immerse in their surging thoughts, and just listen to the plucking of an acoustic guitar.

A very strong claim to a place in country music. We don’t know what Green plans next, but his song writing stands out as something truly special.
