Take My Life is the breakout track from Lake Palmer ’s brand new album, Vagrants. Flickering into being, banjo melodies glisten against a wall of soothing acoustic melodies that show off strong country roots. The sweeping tunes are as familiar as they are unfamiliar. A deja vu nostalgia sips on you and tugs at your heartstrings. As natural as a breeze blowing through the hair and the feel of the warm sun against the skin, the melodies portray the magical impact that beauty and life have on us. They flow with the humility and simplicity of a river that roams the land like a vagrant.

Violin melodies seep into the canvass with tender sentiments, reminiscent of warm hugs, compassion, empathy, and beauty. Its passionate sound brings the folk experience and melancholy to the country nostalgia. Warming and breaking our hearts at the same time, the soundscape is like an ocean of musical currents that pull us towards us only to push us away. And, the vocals! Its delightful timber and texture fit perfectly into the aesthetic of the song. It gracefully becomes one with the ocean of blues.

Beautifully composed and written, the passion and emotions contained in the song are reminiscent of Dylan, Marley, and the likes of them. Definitely, a must-listen!
