Yours Are the Only Ears is the recording project of songwriter Susannah Lee Cutler. Her music leans towards a mesh of sentimental bedroom pop and lo fi folk. Somber guitar progressions mixed with synthesizers and keys compliment her stripped down yet poignant lyrics.
Sometimes there’s a thin veil between sadness and comfort, some warmth in crying. Susannah Cutler’s folk project, Yours Are the Only Ears, finds this veil and hands it to us.
A lovelorn request for company from a bruised soul, the drum-clasped track doesn’t just showcase Cutler’s striking poetic ability to speak volumes with just a single phrase, but quietly conveys the precious calm that a lullaby such as this can provide.
