I can’t stop listening to this song. It came on the radio the other day and I’ve had it on repeat on Spotify ever since. This Irish artist, Hoozier (Andrew Hozier-Byrne) recently released his debut EP and has already exploded onto the charts with this first single, ‘Take me to Church.’ In an interesting interview with Fuse.tv he said the following about the meaning behind it:
The song, to me, is about what it is to be a human, what it is to love someone as a human being, and organizations that would undermine that, and undermine the more natural parts of being a person.
It’s an undeniably powerful song and an intense start to his career tackling wider issues of homophobia alongside his haunting vocals. Definitely one to watch for 2015.
