Can We Work It Out | Gordi

gordi, can we work it outConfession: The fact that I'm always stumbling upon new emerging artists from the land down under is no coincidence. I have this thing for Australia, its accent, its men, and its music. What can I say, they seem to breed them to my taste on the other side of the world, especially in the music gene department.

So this month's #STUMBLEOFTHEMONTH, I'm still calling it a stumble, even though it's from an Australian musician. To my defense, I did technically stumbled upon the track by way of my current favorite Aussie band, Little May.

Gordi is an indie folk artist that has been repeatedly haunting my thoughts with her current single 'Can We Work It Out.' With her nostalgic husky voice she lingers about the inner dilemma to keep thinking about that person that's always in your head, that you so hopelessly want in your life forever, that's become something you need more than something you want, and that you so desperately want to work it out. And yet, you know its best to open your eyes because there's better days ahead than behind you.

Doors | Cardiknox

Cardiknox Doors"Oh my life begins every time a door closes, another one opens." Cardiknox's, an electro-pop duo from Brooklyn, new single could not have come at a better time to my life. It's a precedence to what's to come in the my near future and a reminder to stay positive even when life gets overwhelming because there are better days to come. The end of a chapter is the beginning of a new chapter or in this case - the closing of a door is the opening of another.

Let It All Go | Birdy + RHODES

birdy, rhodes, let it all go, single, duet song,Birdy + RHODES got me feeling all the feels with their new duet single 'Let It All Go'. Who wouldn't get the feels, thou? With the powerful merging of vocals, vividly haunting my emotions when it comes to matters of the heart and a doing that seems to go against human nature: letting go. To which, I've realized that, lately, the theme of 'letting go' has more than ever been so present in my life through the form of musical lyrics that I'm starting to accept its message. But yet, the honesty and fragility in their voices brought to question: why is it so hard to 'let go'? Am I strong enough to 'let it all go'?[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/217870601" params="color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false" width="100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]
