Oddisee – You Don’t Close Your Eyes

Posted on May 27, 2011 by


” ‘You Don’t Close Your Eyes’  is about the dynamics of a relationship turned cold.  Clever wordplay and an effortless cadence propel this insightful tale of domestic apathy, which finds Oddisee questioning what changed in his relationship: “restaurant parking lots seem like the spot  in the plot where you like to  talk a lot, where it used to be the spot in the plot where the windows was steamed because the heat coming off was hot.”   Also along for the ride is frequent collaborator/keyboardist, Ralph Real, whose tenor adds an emotional intensity that helps accentuate the frustrations ofunrequited love.”
