Well this latest song by Canadian sisters Tegan & Sara should send them into the stratosphere of music popularity.
Cause it's that amazing.
I am obsessed with this new track from their album 'Heartthrob.'
So so good.
So back on American Idol last year I had a hunch about Phillip Phillips during the audition round that he was going to walk away as the winner (and he did)...
Well now that the battle rounds on The Voice: Season 4 are over I am going with my hunch again and am predicting that one Sarah Simmons is going to be crowned the winner.
Her blind audition three weeks ago gave me goosebumps. I loved her rendition of 'One of Us' so much I went and bought it on iTunes and have been listening to it non-stop. Truth be told I was so done with the song...no offence Joan Osborne...but when I heard Sarah's arrangement and that raspy (ala Pink, Jewel and Stevie Nicks) voice thing she does when she isn't hitting this incredibly complex, quirky and beautiful high notes I fell in love with song all over again.
This girl can sing. And anyone who goes up against her — well they clearly know they have one hell of an uphill battle.
Plus she's on Team Adam Levine. So CLEARLY that's an added bonus.
So one of my 'did you hear this song' musically inclined friends introduced me to this band last week...not sure why it took me until now to discover them but I'm so glad I did.
The vocals and melodies on this song are like buttah...so soothing and folky, that they instantly transport you to a lazy hazy day somewhere in California (think Fleetwood Mac meets The Smiths).
I. Can't. Get Enough.
