Go Wolf Just Want To “Talk To You”

securedownload

As summer comes to an end, most of us are torn between our sadness at leaving the sunshine behind and our excitement of the leaves changing color and pumpkin spice everything coming back to every local cafe. Just like with every season, I am attempting to piece together a wistful goodbye playlist, but it’s finding those perfect songs that proves to be troublesome. That is, until I was linked to Go Wolf’s new song “Talk To You.”

There is something about it that is ethereal, with a rhythmic flare that reminds me of the best tunes from the late 80s/early 90s, and I cannot stop listening to it. Both catchy and entrancing, Go Wolf will have listeners singing along in no time, and definitely swaying to the beat. Just think, this is the song that will take you back to the beach while you’re back behind a school desk!

Anberlin On The Meaning of Lowborn

Anberlin_2014_web

Stephen Christian of Anberlin has been running a Tumblr on which he posts each song’s lyrics and meanings, even going into the meaning behind each album title. He recently posted the meaning behind Lowborn. Read his explanation below.

 

The title comes from Psalms 62:9, it feels the entire chapter sums up our existence, and our existence in the band. The album cover is the brainchild of Nathan Young and Jordan Butcher.

The title is a mantra that we as ANBERLIN have always tried to adhere to, we never wanted to be ‘rock stars’ we never wanted people to think that we thought of ourselves as better than anyone. We hope that we were more than just a band, we hope in the end that we are considered friends; I felt this was the perfect message to leave out on.
