Picking up where he left off, “Cologne” is the atmospheric new single from Haux aka photographer-turned-musician Woodson Black. “Cologne” is an intimate record that invites you in, letting you ride a rolling wave of emotions. From the rousing drums to Haux’s delicate vocal, “Cologne” is a song rich in detail and full of longing.
Discussing the track, Haux said: “I’ve realized there are so many places I haven't seen in the world, so many faces that seem so familiar and yet somehow so far away. I try to imagine their lives and how they differ from my own. I know I'll never really know, but there's something about not knowing that gives me comfort and keeps me eager to see more people and places.
“There was a certain magic about Cologne. It struck me as a place that I might've had another life in if I hadn't lived the life I have. When I was back home, off tour, I remembered that feeling and tried to imagine a life there and the story of what might have been”.
Haux will be playing Hoxton Hall on 9 November.
