Well I basically fell in love with two tracks today – instantly – I was hooked after a few beats on each song.
That does not happen often.
First one is
My Brightest Diamond “Be Brave”
Fantastic song, and since I have a soft spot for clowns/mimes/cabaret -faces I find the video absolutely adorable.
The voice is just fantastic!
If you are in San Fransisco, you should go to the Great American Music Hall, apparently My Brightest Diamond is playing tonight.
Second one is
Shona Foster – Hard Work
The flirting with the Cabaret-punk makes me breath heavy.
The rawness in this tune and the piano… love it.
Thank you F for both these women today
this is just fantastic
Friday I arrived to the hectic, rainy, grey and cold city that I for 3,5 years to called my home.
From a sunny and relaxed little island in the Mediterranean to a city where the pulse is sky high, everyone is dressed in black and constantly rushing towards something.
It was the weekend of survival of the fittest, even though I had to opt out for the race due to the ankle, I felt that I did achieve something when surviving coming to Victoria station where the amount of people outnumbered the whole population on my island and they were all stressed and determined.
I realized quickly that to survive I had to drop my newly found “Mela attitude” and get back into my London-survival-mood I practiced for years.
So I did and I survived…
And the race?
A special post about is coming later…
I love this picture
