New Music Crush: @Kodaline

Feeling regretful, wistful and bittersweet today, and this Kodaline song is the perfect wallowing music accompaniment. 

My horoscope prompted me to take stock of my last few years and determine whether I’m in a better place. I am, but man, the road from there to here was unpleasant to say the least.

If you have a person, hug them tight today. Dote on them a little. Be grateful.

Kodaline will be touring in the US in October.

Music Crush: @titusandronicus

Yep. This just about captures the frenetic energy of a Titus Andronicus show.
