It would be too easy to say that one could hear Sting recording the song. But, often, the problem is trying to be too smart and which leads to pretentiousness and that kiss of death called Overthinking. Overthinking has been the ruin of many an artist.
So, let’s leave it as “North Wind” by WhiteMoor and recorded in 2014- sounds like something Sting might have recorded when writing songs like “Fragile” and “Field Of Dreams”- strong melodies with moving and effortless lyrics.
The vocals by WhiteMoor are on the money, the arrangement is deceptively simple, and the guitar playing is every bit as good as something Dominic Miller would play- yes, on a Sting recording.
