It’s a tried-and-true song construction at work in Logan Vath’s “Love Like That.”
The verse is an anxious prattle, made feathery by the Nebraska native’s light picking and scene setting. In two and a half minutes, there’s media invasion, detox, confession, a compass rose and more. By the time Vath’s under-the-breath croon reaches the chorus, it’s packed so full with meaning as to be an exhalation of what came before. The whiskey at the end makes for a second exhale.
Virginia-based, Vath was in Lincoln earlier this month playing Vega with his fellow Scottsbluff natives in blét. By the way, you can check out blét’s Spencer McCoy and Cole Keeton covering a Logan Vath song here.
