"Somehow You're Always There" - Hunter Metts | Review

Hunter Metts puts an achingly beautiful spin on grief with “Somehow You’re Always There”.

Losing someone is one of the toughest things you can go through in life. But, believe it or not, there is beauty to be seen in the process, and that is shown in this track. It paints loss in an almost positive light. While someone may be physically gone, you can still feel their presence there. They’re always with you. Metts does an incredible job of illustrating this using a simple combination of soft vocals and an acoustic guitar. Lines like “If you take one thing with you / just know I’m always yours” and “It’s like watching all the leaves fall / it’s like standing in the rain” are such simple yet impactful ways of illustrating the beauty in the loss. If you’ve ever experienced pain like this, “Somehow You’re Always There” will help you see it in a different light.

Based out of Franklin, Tennessee, Hunter Metts has credited notable artists such as Bon Iver and Novo Amor as his inspirations for his indie-folk music. He has been playing the piano since he was ten years old, and he eventually picked up a guitar and began writing songs. He released several pieces independently before recently signing with BMG. If you liked this track, be sure to give his others a listen!
