Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Rock :: Courtney Barnett - Need A Little Time

Courtney Barnett - Need A Little Time

Courtney Barnett - Need A Little Time
Once again, Barnett proves herself a lyricist of the highest order. Every poetic line seems to extol the need for space in personal relationships but can so easily be extrapolated into broader metaphors with gems like “Everybody wants to have their say, forever waiting for some car crash, I need a little time out” and “Shave your head to see how it feels, Emotionally it’s not that different, but to the hand it’s beautiful”.

'Need A Little Time' is accompanied by a wondrous video by Barnett’s frequent visual collaborator Danny Cohen. Cohen says "Need A Little Time has this soaring, floating feeling to it. I decided to play on the meaning of the song, Courtney needs some time away from herself (and you). I didn’t want to show Courtney leaving her friends/family/fans etc, it needed to be more metaphorical. Courtney floats through space and time, ends up in some isolated part of the universe. She finally has found some time alone, just Courtney and her guitar, singing in space without a care in the world.

The release of Tell Me How You Really Feel will also be followed by a string of worldwide live dates.

About this track...

'Need A Little Time' is one of the most plaintively beautiful songs Barnett has written, majestic in structure, performance and dynamic range. Within the rarely-heard tenderness and vulnerability in Barnett’s singing voice, grows strength in each verse until it takes flight, becoming weightless as it floats over each euphoric chorus.
