After a sweltering week and 4th of July night, we all need something to cool off with and just chill out to. You have to think about cold to feel cold, right? Maybe? I Break Horses released this track late last summer, and appropriately so. It’s a song that’s lyrically cold, but has a melody and production drenched in a summer heat-wave. The crescendo of the synths and the steady drum beat with a soaring guitar in the back contrast Maria Lindén’s warning to her lover that even a cold heart bleeds. Kind of depressing for this hot Thursday evening, but with Lindén lazily delivering her message, the words melt into the music leaving us with a summer evening synth symphony.
Uncork a bottle of white wine or whatever your drink of choice may be; sit on your roof, fire escape, in front of your AC and turn this tune up and zone out. It’s Thursday evening; might as well chill out , not think, and just listen for a solid 3:43 minutes before the weekend begins. You’ll snap back to reality just as abruptly as the song ends.
