Boyscouts the songwriting project of Taylor Vick has shared new single “Didn’t I”, the second single from upcoming album Wayfinder, coming on October 1st. Pre-order here. This follows on from “That’s Life Honey” released earlier in the year. The new single also comes accompanied with a music video directed by Lucy Sandler.
Vick questions the world on “Didn’t I”, moments great and small. “I don’t have the answer / I have memories” she says in her opening statement as she tries to find her own way in the world. But for all her contemplation she can never reach a conclusion, “Maybe things are all they seem / Maybe we’re living in someones bad dream”. There’s a brush of suffering and serenity washed over this track. It sways like a boat out at sea, drifting further and further from an answer; yet always shining with natural caustic beauty.
Speaking on the new track Vick said:
“Why are we alive? Is there a point to any of this? Have I done this before? I was thinking about these questions like that, just playing with these ideas and being curious. I lost that curiosity for many years, and it came back to me in the last year. I started to wonder about these types of things again. It feels better to have curiosity for life.”
