We Are The Wild Youth

Take yourself outside, dear reader. Sit in the evening sunset, lay on the grass and close your eyes. Play this song delicately, pretending that you're in a movie, and look up to the setting sky as you contemplate your innermost thoughts.

Gosh, this song is so perfect. At first, the guitar picking creates the thought that the upcoming music will be based on an innocent teen diary-reminscent topic. However, as the lyrics seep in, a gradual melancholic atmosphere is created. With lines such as "If you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones 'cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs" a saddening message is conveyed as the lovely voice sings about a lover who she is quite bitter and remorseful over. I adore the use of percussion as the song builds, i find it to create such a wonderful sense of poignancy and passion within the meaning.
As this built up anger over a certain someone gradually calms and realisation that being bitter towards somebody will do nothing, the line "and if you're in love, then you are the lucky one, 'cause most of us are bitter over someone" is sung over a more simplistic accompaniment. The musical arrangement of this song is very much conducive to the meaning of the lyrics, they go perfectly together.

How has everyone spending their time in this lovely weather that we've been having?
I've been sat in my garden attempting to bronze my almost sun reflecting worthy, pale-as-can-be legs.



  1. Wow I really love this, perfect chill out music but lyrics are really beautiful too. Thanks for the recommendation, definitely gonna check them out :) xoxo

  2. What a nice idea, sitting outside and reading. And that song sounds HEAVENLY! Seems like such a perfect thing to accompany a lovely movie in a lovely scene!

    It's so soft and lovely at the beggining, and then it gets super intense, and blah, you have superb taste in music!

    Also, she sounds just like Florence Welsch.
