et, beautiful song that captures the depths of insecurity and isolation with heart and grace. Bypassing an instrumental intro, “I’m Sorry” begins with Mathilda’s striking, emotive voice that enters with a breathy, heartfelt tone. Light piano chords appear gently beneath laying an airy foundation that’s just substantial enough to offer support to the near-weightless vocals. The instrumentation slowly becomes more rhythmic as the lyrics pick up in pace as they craft a powerful narrative of feeling voiceless and misunderstood. The chorus repeats “I’m sorry” in a pleading, raw way that is relatable and heartbreakingly real.
Based in London, “I’m Sorry” follows the release of Mathilda Homer’s recent single “Rock Bottom”, a track that was co-written with Matt Maltese and garnered wide acclaim. With this release, the artist further solidifies her place as a uniquely gifted musician who can mirror the deepest of human emotions with an empathetic and soft performance that is full of intensity. This gorgeous track is a triumph for which no apology is necessary.
