Sean Fournier – Take Me Down
As we move our way further into Spring, Sean Fournier has released yet another song from his Brace Yourself project for the month of May. The new single, titled “Take Me Down”, has a somewhat darker undertone than Fournier’s usual pop sound. Forgoing his staple guitar and piano riffs, Fournier draws his sound for “Take Me Down” heavily from horns, banjo, and strings. “Take Me Down” seems to tell a sinister tale of a man whose soul is in question. The song weaves a story of living a life without caution, “And that’s the very day I went and threw my life away/Over my shoulder just so I could hear the sound it makes/And now I’ll never be the same and you can tell your friends/To take me down” and finishing with an almost ambient warning, “Oh save my soul/The day I get back on my parole”. While “Take Me Down” departs from his staple sound, the track still carries many of the elements that make Fournier’s songs so catchy. Also, this foray into a darker part of Fournier’s music is a welcome change of pace from his Brace Yourself project, making “Take Me Down” really stand out among the tracks released so far.
As with all the songs from Brace Yourself, “Take Me Down” is available for free download (just click the picture above) and is accompanied by a new bracelet for the month of May. This month’s color is Blue, seemingly matching the cold, dark undertones of his most recent track.
