Music producer and instrumentalist Marcus James recently wrote and produced his new single ‘Honest’.
Marcus James’ song clearly translates the strain put on romantic relationships when there is the literal distance between you and your lover, or there is emotional distance and you cannot see eye to eye most of the time.
Marcus James uses the issue of time differences and space as a barrier between a relationship, but truthfully it boils down to the emotional distance between the two lovers.
Marcus James shares his thoughts, “When I wrote the lyrics to Honest I was a little obsessed with capturing the image of the space in between two people as they drift apart from one another. When that space begins to hollow out it feels as if there’s a silent conversation happening, made of everything not being said out loud. There are some autobiographical lines, especially the portrayal of a night spent watching the snowfall and hearing nothing but the sounds of trains and cars. If you listen closely throughout the song you’ll hear some sounds from the train station in the distance that I recorded on my iPhone by sticking my arm out the apartment window.”
