Sam Costigan recently released the album, ‘January May‘, which is all about life, love, and relationships. ‘January May‘ contains ten heartfelt, warm and charming songs. This is an album you’re certainly to love! Costigan’s vocal performance truly brings each song to life. You feel every song. Songs like ‘Beautiful Disaster‘, ‘Talking to a Memory’, and the title song ‘January May‘ are gentle, delicate and have a soft pain that flows straight to the listener. Meanwhile, songs such as ‘Stay‘ and ‘Home Honey‘ are a bit more upbeat and flirty. Still, ‘While You Were‘, shows growth and an appreciation for what once was. Here’s what Costigan had to say about ‘January May‘
The idea behind the songs on this album is that you are getting a window into someone’s (in this case my) raw emotions and life experience. The songs are all coming from a deeply person first person perspective, and it’s meant to feel as if you’re reading a journal. You can take this to a next level by rearranging some of the songs and connecting the dots in a timeline of events. For instance, “Stay” is about a dysfunctional but intoxicating relationship, and the differences between people cause things to turn sour in “Don’t”. Finally, “Beautiful Disaster” talks about resigning to the flaws in that relationship and simply appreciating it for what it was. There are interweaved storylines like this throughout the album.
‘January May‘ gives a full range of emotions as well as atmospheres, making it an album that everyone can find something to enjoy! You can watch the music video for ‘Through The Growing‘ down below.
