Rico Friebe - Leave and Go - Stereo Stickman

Rico Friebe Leave and Go


Acoustic intimacy captivates from the outset, as songwriter and singer Rico Friebe delves into contemplation and wonder, with the melodically alluring, heartfelt Leave And Go.

Familiar to begin with, raw fingerstyle guitar sets a live-style vibe that naturally draws you in. Leave and Go soon weaves in a delicate and breathy vocal, and a rise and fall melody to match the questioning, listing nature of the lyrics.

All at once provocative and deeply moving, the song gathers momentum throughout, slowly but surely strengthening its grip on the listener. Later the looping sentiment that is the hook injects a suddenly passionate, multi-layered moment of resolve and brightness, which is ultimately blissful in its near-euphoric peak.

The piano, choir of voices, and clear volume and energy of this closing section is powerful – simple yet striking, uplifting in its hopeful air of possibility, and also indicative of better things to come. It leaves a lasting degree of optimism with the listener, and wraps up an otherwise intriguing, compelling single in a beautifully effective manner.

Fascinating writing with a classically familiar style. Hopefully there’s plenty more music to come from Germany’s Rico Friebe.
