Ahead of his upcoming 2022 LP, The Story That Lived Here, Edmontonian songwriter Ben Sures is sharing “Boring People,” a piece of acute folk introspection that wrestles with the zeitgeist.
“I was trying to be honest, asking myself real questions. So much of what we tell ourselves and others is just to navigate society, to get along, to function, to not be outcast, and so much of it can be at the expense of our own truth, our emotional and mental health,” says Sures.
Connection is at the heart of this song, Sures speaking plainly about the honest realities of human nature. Recorded live in the studio, his acoustic guitar is complemented by upbright bass and violin.
