So last week was so much fun that I couldn’t resist coming back this week and subjecting you to the music I put on repeat and listen to for hours. You’re welcome.
This week: “Waves” by The Dear Hunter. It’s an easy, accessible pick, one of the few songs that, when the outro is removed like it is in the video, it easily stands alone. But the song, like the album it’s part of, is part of a six act story told all through music: the birth, life, and death of a boy known only as “The Dear Hunter.” It’s fascinating, and the music, as expected for progressive rock, is a study in complexity and differing music styles, and if you really want to dig deep into the lead singer/songwriter and the story behind these albums, then click here, but then come back, because you have a song to listen to.
“Waves” is one of those songs that gives me very distinct visuals, and naturally, those visuals don’t line up with the video. That said, it’s a compelling and catchy song, especially in context of the greater album.
Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!
Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
