Feature | Róisín Murphy “Incapable”
Starting out with a simple bass beat and an understated piano line, Murphy builds up the vocal intensity to drive home the lyrical point. With a chorus hook of “never had a broken heart/am I incapable of love”, the lyrics highlight what can be a common feeling — being afraid to love. Around the 2:50 mark is when the euphoria kicks in. A gorgeous layer of synth pads envelops the arrangement as Murphy utilizes some creative vocal phrasing and brings the track back to its original beat. Barratt’s relaxed production style does a wonderful job tying all of these elements together. All in all, “Incapable” is a fantastic track that combines a classic house groove with that “crying on the dancefloor” feel. Please add this one to your playlist immediately!
