Canadian singer Barzin digs deep into heartache on bracing 'Nobody Told Me'

Listen, Dammit, has a fondness for wrenching break-up songs — sad bastard music, as it’s sometimes known — and this one’s a gem: “Nobody Told Me” by Canadian singer Barzin.

It’s from his third album “Notes on an Absent Lover,” a title that speaks volumes before you even hear a note. “Nobody Told Me” finds him trying to come to terms with an unexpected break-up, singing in smooth, downhearted tones over ghostly guitar.

There’s actually kind of a Chris Isaak vibe, but darker and colder. It’s utterly compelling. Must be a Canadian thing.
