Album Notes
"dope sick," the first single off richard cortez' upcoming ep, the welder and the lark, continues the narrative of cortez' heartfelt and deeply personal songwriting efforts spanning nearly 15 years. the song, driven by intricate acoustic guitar finger-picking and a purposeful kick drum, is adorned with spacious electric guitar swells and richard's raspy, velvety voice. both in lyrical content and delivery, the song functions from a place of heartache and despair, amplified by cortez' understanding of lyric interpretation, vocal dynamics, and unique performative nuance. drawing the jarring comparison of love and heroin addiction, "dope sick" is a raw, intoxicating ballad of unrequited love straight to the vein that will leave you wondering, “is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?”
