Ty Richard is hitting Restart with the help of Liv Marie in his spiritually romantic new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Smoothly gliding along on its polished sound, minimalist arrangement, sparse mix and brilliant engineering, this sleek and stylish track is a preview into the Toronto soul-R&B artist’s forthcoming LP In Time & Grace. With flowing melodies, the song’s seamless structure takes audiences through a gamut of scenes that support the silky, studied, and sculptured vocal textures and melodies that make up this brilliant work. The lyrics, though introspective and sometimes fairly personal, immerse listeners deep within this duo’s universe — a tango of promises and regrets that amount to a compelling, rich and vast pop song that is sure to go around the airwaves.
Perhaps surprisingly, Restart actually expresses the notion of returning to and being accepted by God after turning away from him and his faithful love. Richard does a brilliant job at passing a smart, deep, heartfelt, philosophical prayer for a beautiful love song. Then again, maybe it just confirms the writing talent that accompanies Richard’s introspection and vocal talent, and how the two intertwine.
