Simplistically presenting an important message in lyrics is one of the most endearing qualities that musicians can possess. Minnesota-based singer-songwriter, MoeDeLL, effortlessly does just that with his infectious, laid back and vocal harmony-driven new folk single, ‘Porch,’ as he details the process of occasionally distancing himself from the normal hectic nature of his life, so that he can relax. The track is the first release from his upcoming record, ‘There It Is,’ which is the prolific musician’s fourth project since transition from his early days as a successful rocker to an Americana-country singer.
Pulling inspiration from such celebrated bands and singers as the Avett Brothers, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, ‘Porch’ stunningly emphasizes the comforts of home that MoeDeLL has rediscovered since switching genres, including maintaining romantic love, maturing and the support of his family. His prolific new tune thrives on the elements of traditional country music, and powerfully highlights the straightforward message of the importance of maintaining close relationships.
The singer has also expressed his belief that people don’t want to decipher words and meanings when they listen to music while they spend time with their friends and family, as they just want to relax and listen to a good catchy track. So even if his lyrics have a deep underlying meaning, he tries to present them in a very simple way. He has also revealed that when he switched genres in 2014, his songwriting expresses more of who he really is, particularly in his lyrics. He feels at home penning tunes about day-to-day life and the simple things. ‘Porch’ is an engaging, sincere example of people being with someone they love, and experiencing life together.
Through gritty, emotional vocals, MoeDeLL croons about wanting to upgrade his life and enjoy his surroundings at home from the title location on ‘Porch.’ He emotes that he wants to build a porch, so that he can not only have a place to talk to the woman he loves on Sunday morning about what everyone they know is doing, but also have a spot that they can watch the sunsets together. He also enthrallingly notes that he enjoys their simple, good life together, and offers inspiration that true love can genuinely last.
Driven by an acoustic guitar, which helps make the single seem as though it would be enthralling to see performed live, the overall message on ‘Porch’ is endearing. It’s nice to hear a song about a couple easily maintaining their love, instead of another break-up track about the heartbreak people endure over the ending of a romance.
