this song from bat for lashes new album the haunted man really shows off what she as an artist is all about. i personally love songs that sound sad but are actually not. maybe i’m crazy but it plays to the idea that everything can be beautiful, it just depends on your perspective. it’s the kind of song that makes me smile; bitter sweet in a sense.
i am a fan of her previous albums, even though i felt some tracks to be a little monotonous. her voice and accent are very beautiful, and her lyrics are very poetic and well written; straight to the point with a lot said in between the lines.
i came across this song on pitchfork’s best new releases. give it a listen if you haven’t had the chance. its a very groovy song. it’s the kind of song i’d dub a feel good song. great rythm and beat. i just might get the entire album, sounds to be very interesting, a great find! i also love the title and lyrics “hold on when you get love and let go when you give it”. there is something very retro about the song as a whole.
opening track from “Put Your Back N 2 It,” the new album from Perfume Genius (Mike Hadreas). i stumbled on this today just as soon as i woke up and it could’t have been better timing. it’s a beautiful song. maybe not everyone’s cup of tea, but it you like classical piano, you’ll in the least find it intriguing. personally i thought it was hauntingly beautiful. the track is quiet, subtle, and simple.
i have been waiting for the release of the new xx album for a while, and this song was worth the wait. i don’t know what to say other than it is truly beautiful. i’ve always found there music to be designed. every up and down, every note, every voice, and every sound is carefully placed; beautifully.
