The Backs Of My Eyes Hum With Things I've Never Done

I have been wanting to hear the full version of this song ever since i heard it sampled on the Nikon advert and my ears were certainly not disappointed when i eventually found it whilst browsing tumblr blogs.

Welcome Home // Radical Face
I love the weaving of different sounds at the beginning with the use of guitars, echoing voices and a beautiful incorporation of chimes. The vocal differentiation is wonderful; during the verses the listener hears such an adorable, soft and folksy voice whereas the chorus exudes a full, harmonised sound which really creates a sense of belonging and takes my imagination to scenes of festival-goers enjoying the setting sun and living in the moment. For me, this song just has a positive 'right here, right now' feel to it, the same sort of effect as the tracks from The Temper Trap. Also, the lyric "the backs of my eyes hum with things i've never done" is such a lovely phrasing of an active mind and imagination which is just waiting to explore the world. I can't manage to believe that it came out two years ago. A teeny bit late on that one, eh Mols?
Aaaaand Happy New Year to everyone too!
