From the recording Nothing I Deserve
On the surface, an immersive trip-hop and RnB fusion of soulful vocal layers and intimate desires. Underneath this, however, we get the deeply revealing tale of Narcissus – a figure condemned to living a life of thirst whilst sitting by a river; water he would ultimately drown in.
The story is that Narcissus rejected the advances of an admiring lady Echo, and in doing so was punished by Nemesis. He would later fall in love with his own reflection, after spending all of his time consumed by it, and after his death, a daffodil would grow in his place.
A fascinating tale in and of itself, a poignant one with undeniable relevance to modern living, now brought to light in a uniquely musical and cleverly metaphorical fashion by Wall Side.
