Brandon Grafius' new single, “Cardinal in Winter” seeks to illuminate the light we often find ourselves looking for beneath the darkness. Led by a gentle acoustic guitar and layers of delicate keys and harmonica, "Cardinal In Winter" offers a sense of optimism and hope via its vivid lyricism and dreamy melodies that despite difficult seasons in our lives, there is always something to look forward to.
"Cold creeps in through the windowpanes, the fire's down to embers
Your soul feels like it’s frosting at the center
When it seems the sun will never come, try hard to remember
There’s a cardinal in winter"
Grafius' upcoming album, Highways and Backroads, is due out May 11 on Lost Mitten Records.
