This is the band that I spent the weekend obsessing over. They are a family transplanted from across the Pacific (Streets of Laredo are originally from New Zealand and are now based in Brooklyn). They’ve received some coverage and I heard Girlfriend a couple of months ago, but this song just struck a chord with me. It is the lead song of the first of two EPs.
That led me to listening both EPs. A lot.
I am finding it hard…
There is something to be said for struggling. I find myself staying quiet and inside, away from the world. It gives me the time and space to think about things. It helps ease my troubled mind.
I would like to be more carefree and honest, but I find myself dreaming and then calculating. My mind vandalizes my dreams. I want so desperately to say one thing…to do one meaningful thing, and I rationalize not doing because how it can affect everything for everyone. I want to be selfish for that one time and yet I concede my wish to try to be considerate of all others.
I don’t want to lose anyone and if it means not have anything more than that, I struggle with how this all works out.
Enjoy Everything To Everyone.
