My pick this week for WLFC’s top song is “Call If You Need Me” by Vance Joy. Vance Joy, otherwise known as James Keogh, is also popular for his songs “Riptide” and “Mess Is Mine.” “Call If You Need Me” comes off of his second studio album, Nation of Two, which was recently released on February 23.
The style of this song is very similar to songs off of his first album. The lyrics of the song describe unrequited, unconditional love. It describes that no matter the circumstances, love can persist. Vance Joy’s voice is powerful and emotional in this song.
Vance Joy is similar to artists such as George Ezra, Hozier, The Lumineers and Milky Chance. If you enjoy listening to emotional music with an acoustic sound, I would highly recommend checking out Vance Joy’s new album, Nation of Two.
