This is why I write this blog. This song. This band.
I miss finding songs that hit me in the gut. It’s an all-too-far-uncommon occurrence these days. But Ghosts, from The National Parks, did just that. This tune has just got deep into my head tonight, and I can’t stop humming along with that chorus.
The National Parks released Young, the album this track comes from, last year in 2013. I slept on it then, but certainly won’t be sleeping on any of their stuff in the future. Their single from this year, “As We Ran”, is beautiful too.
