Chalk it up to Mercury's Retrograde or simple boredom, but Booth newcomer Kristie McCracken's been feeling a little restless in her current relationship, where her man isn't giving her the space she needs to grow. On this newly-released single, the Vancouver soul songstress struggles to explain the the reasons behind her sudden departure, and soulfully outlines the incompatibilities in their respective outlooks on love. Over Dr. Watson's resonant keys and acoustic guitar picking, she explains: “If I would have settled down with you, I'd be longing for more. / So the tighter you grip the more I'll be slipping away from you.” Craving more from this talented vocalist? You'll find what you seek on her latest EP, For Brothers and Lovers, released independently earlier this month.
