Writing for a blog–especially a music-based one, has been something I’ve been wanting to do for sometime. Thank you to Ian for making that happen! Along with other passions like hockey and the love of travel, music shines throughout me. There is nothing I enjoy more than getting together with a group of friends, and having a sing-a-long. It is such a genuine way to express yourself, and a wonderful way to cohere with any type of emotion.
For my first post, I’m choosing one of my favorite songs: Young Bride by Midlake. This song reminds me of past summer nights, cruising slowly around town with a group of quiet, listening friends. From the slow violin in the beginning of the song, to the uprising beat, this song makes me feel so warm. It makes me think of loved ones, and it makes me want to lay back and daydream. Being a fantastic folk-indie song with catchy lyrics, I hope you all like it as much as I do.
