While I was visiting my aunt outside of Frankfurt, I saw a tiniest glimpse of the music video for BOY’s Fear on a German music countdown. A week later I was in Salzburg dancing in the mirror to it. A week after that I was in Berlin listening to it at least twice a day. A few weeks after THAT I’m still listening. I guess what I’m trying to say is that this song ages well. And travels well, too.
To me this album is the perfect amount of challenge. A lot of the songs have a good hook, but there’s also enough substance. There’s something very Sara Bareilles about the lyrics and something very Feist about the styling. I dig it. Truly.
♥1. We Were Here
And the rains get rough
But time can’t wash us off
We won’t ever disappear
We were here
It was really love
Truly one of the best songs I’ve ever heard, and a great comfort when someone you love can’t get out of their head. Everyone go watch the music video now!
3. Hit My Heart
A catchy, but biting observation of us Millennials.
5. No Sleep For The Dreamer
♥7. New York
Cause the truth is
I was wrong when I said I was bored
Any street that I’m walking on with you
Anywhere with you could be New York
8. Rivers Or Oceans
Super charming and catchy chorus.
9. Into the Wild
Spotify just went straight to the acoustic version of BOY’s first album, Mutual Friends. It’s promising already, I gotta say…
