The Muse: Night Beds, “Even If We Try”

Videos by American Songwriter

“Even If We Try” is gorgeous and haunting, an orchestral ballad anchored by simple piano chords and a smart, sophisticated string arrangement. It’s Winston Yellen’s voice that leaves the biggest impact, though. Armed with an octave-spanning range that flies far above the treble clef, he sounds like a reincarnated Jeff Buckley singing in some astral cathedral, giving us something new to fall to our knees over.
