This single comes about three weeks after her previous single, “Quince Tree“ released on January 25, 2021, after a hiatus of almost four years. Known for her minimalist sound and meaningful lyrics, Yozoh is able to capture the beauty in the ordinary as she does in this song.
The song is of the ballad and folk genre, and has been written by Yozoh herself and has been composed by Sagong. The lyrics of the song depict the nature of human beings, and how they can be both big and small or can have both strength and weakness. Yozoh in this song seems to focus on the fragility and weakness of people, how people can be so small.
The song’s music only has the guitar in the background along with the sound of a tambourine. The simple melody fits best with Yozoh’s soft and calming vocals.
The music video for the song shows Yozoh in a coffee shop as she plays the tambourine and sings the song with the guitarist playing alongside her. The video is fairly monotonous, with no climactic scene happening, however the minimal approach is what captures the essence of the song perfectly.
