Title - ‘When It’s All Over’
Artist - The Everydays
If you’ve never heard of The Everydays, well, my God people, get on out there and buy their music NOW! Having already released their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, Americana duo The Everydays are back with their sophomore effort When It's All Over.
Hailing from Black Mountain, North Carolina, The Everydays is the collaborative coupling of singer-songwriters Tim Marsh and David Zoll. Both also know for being part of other NC area acts (Chalwa, Asheville Horns and Bayou Diesel), both Marsh and Zoll also have a very decent following with regard their solo careers too.
Here on When It’s All Over, the mellow title track opens the album for us, and is quickly followed by the Country-tinged ‘Backwards Just Because.’ The beautiful, truly inspiring ‘Wasting Time’ is next, and is quite easily one of my favorite tracks on this complete musical experience. As the backbeat is turned up a wee bit, the storytelling of ‘One By One’ is brought forth, and that’s backed by ‘Playing With Fire’.
One major theme on When It's All Over is loss. Indeed, David Zoll fully admits that the album’s musical flow is all about “dealing with loss over the backdrop of getting by day to day. Knowing our condition is temporary and pondering the great unknown.” However, he does add, “With a couple love songs thrown in to pull you back from the edge." One of those former songs is the repetitive message behind ‘Nothing Does Anything’ which is followed by the gently guitar picking on ‘Careless,’ the quietly freeflowing ‘Loving You,’ and then finally, the world seen though their eyes, ‘Oh This World’ (“This world’s a fragile place. It’s a father with changing fates. It’s a love falling from grace. Oh this world.”)
