Now Playing: “The Bay” by Metronomy, “Feel” by Bombay Bicycle Club, and “In Through The Eyelids” by Reptar

The heat of the sun on your skin, the intensity felt inside, the spark and the sizzle and not knowing when to stop. The beats and sounds seep into you and flow through. Mind is elsewhere, high up in the sky.

Mini Reviews: “Volume 3” by She & Him

The fourth record from the dynamic duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward brings forth their original sound and bonds perfectly with the incoming warmer weather of this once dreary Canadian landscape. The songs range in emotion and tempo, creating a fluid movement from one to another and an overall splendour of sound. The cover itself instills thoughts of warmer, dreamier weather and what the coming months entail.

With this record, She & Him have continued with a respective balance between both upbeat tracks and slower movements. While not all the songs may grab you at first listen, some will always be there when you need a slower, melowy-er track for those late nights or early mornings. Some of my favourites include: “Baby” and “I Could’ve Been Your Girl”.
