Happy Thursday! Today brings weather that makes you want to stay inside and be with this song. And what a song it is. I’ve noticed (and appreciated) the nostalgic aspect of EMPT lately, channeling some serious oldies vibes. Thank goodness that is the direction we’ve taken. This song breathes a slow build-up to a place that we anxiously wait for. The strings and vocals make me want to live in this edit. Where every direction I turn is a classy fella with a suit and hat, crooning into the mic. I love the way the loops work in this edit, too. They made me feel as if there was so much more to the song, so much that when it ended, I was surprised.
What we’re dealing with here is a soulful Thursday. When it’s cold and threatening 38 inches in New York City, I usually just let weather do it’s thing. I commend those who can go out and fight against it, that’s cool. I feel a strong appreciation though for the way the universe reminds us that we aren’t in charge. Whether it be via nature, disasters, other human beings sent our way, whatever. I live for those unexpected signs.
