Quiet, Please – My Ship Is Sinking, I Should Probably Learn How To Swim (Track Of The Day, 19th April)

Our Track Of The Day is a monologue of hurt, doubt, and desire from Quiet, Please.

“My Ship Is Sinking, I Should Probably Learn How To Swim” is relatively simple musically, but an emotional journey by way of what is spoken along with its sunset sound. It has a feeling of having reached a point of overwhelm and letting all of the thoughts and worries run from you and put into (very relatable) words, as an act of raw honesty as well as an attempt to process.

“Are you ever sad for no reason
Like your world is falling apart
Like someone’s reached through you
And ripped out your entire heart
Am I the only one who feels like
Everything that’s good can’t be true
Cause the past has given me trust issues
And it’s just not something I can work through”

When we interviewed Quiet, Please, Brice agreed that it was a cathartic song to write.

“I actually remember this one so clearly, I nailed down some chords and then put a drum beat behind them, turned on a mic and just started speaking my thoughts and what I felt. Then we all made it what it is today. This is actually one of my favorite tracks.”

This relatability, vulnerability and catchy sound is what makes Quiet, Please’s music a pleasure to absorb and escape to. Listen to “My Ship Is Sinking, I Should Probably Learn How To Swim” on Spotify.
