Self Described “Appalachian Emo” Maybe Babs has released her new single ‘Simple Life’, a song with a wistful nature similar to that of Neil Young.

A gorgeous yet melancholy country inspired track, Maybe Babs sings a story of losing a childhood friend but catching glimpses of them throughout the years. It captures the gentle innocence of young friends and the sadness of no longer having them around. The slide guitar brings a wonderfully ethereal quality to the track, this paired with Babs beautiful, soft vocals gives us a song that makes you yearn for things lost.

A sad but dreamy story, it makes you long for simpler times, where your biggest worry would’ve been how long you can stay out to play for.
