It’s been a wild week: spurts of catastrophic rains, roaring temps., and trying to prep and prepare for a trip abroad. But amidst all of that, I’ve had a couple songs I’d like to share for this Thursday’s Quencher in no particular order below:
Indigo Svn – “Cristen’s Song”
Sometimes life’s darkest moments create the best art. That’s the case in this piece by Indigo Svn. “Cristen’s Song” explains the disconnect that often occurs when two lovers are separated and time creeps in, sandwiching itself between the two.
In a short interview with Indigo, he tells us that after being separated due to familial obligations, a woman he was involved with had spent some time around an ex flame.
“I became really emotional and it was hard to communicate [so] I made the song.”
Not until months later did Indigo finally find out that she was in fact cheating. His feelings unfolded to create “Cristen’s Song” – a song that evokes “a love hate relationship because of all the emotional history,” explains Indigo.
JAY-Z – “The Story of OJ”
Back with those Brooklyn vibes, Jay-Z mimics the racist cartoons of the past in “The Story of OJ.” USA Today calls it “politically motivated,” “The Story of OJ” and the entire 4:44 album declares a call on reality – that no one is above the culture. Revealing hard truths, 4:44 dares to say what no one else is.
Covert Run – “Daytrip”
New group Covert Run brings “Daytrip.” Summer romances can bring a slew of emotion, but most importantly hope. Wishful thinking that summer will never end are the types of vibes I pick up from this new single. It’s a song that I want to lay in the grass to, staring up at the sun, letting my cares fall at the wayside.
