DREAMING IN REVERSE // #004
"You Said Nothing" by Epic45 (2004 // Wayside & Woodland)
I’m sorry for the recent delay in new Dreaming in Reverse posts, but i’m back with an absolutely stunning track from a band that is massively underrated. Epic45 is a British post-rock/dream pop band that has been quietly releasing gorgeous albums for more than a decade. “You Said Nothing” is the track that first found me. It’s also the kind of song that is intertwined some very important moments in my life.
Unlike the earlier Dreaming in Reverse posts, I’m not going to dig out the nostalgia in order to establish why I chose the song. Instead, I’m going to recommend that you use one of the links below to sample the track in it’s entirety.What you’re going to find is a gentle, hushed lullaby that is as sweet as it is heartbreaking. When I think of the time in which I discovered the song, it’s almost always in the context of Autumn. The album itself namechecks the season, and rightfully so. This is melancholic music for the changing leaves and early evenings and quiet walks under cold black skies.
The song is a decade old, but it sounds like not a day has passed. since its release. I still crave music like this on a daily basis. When there’s nothing new to excite my ears and heart, I can always bring up “You Said Nothing” and fall in love all over again.
