I have a pretty eclectic taste when it comes to music and while I do have my all-year go-to artists and songs, there always is this one favourite song of the moment, which captures the way I feel best or speaks to me for other reasons. My current favourite is “Take Shelter” by Years & Years.
I can’t even remember when I heard it for the first time; I think I just coincidentally stumbled upon it on Youtube. It instantly grabbed me: the interesting lyrics, the artsy video, and the unique and original sound. Not even sure why this song in particular stuck with me so much but it has definitely been on repeat for the past weeks. My favourite part are the lines of the second verse (2:02)
I don’t really wanna stop myself
Nobody’s gonna tell me I need help,
Are you coming over soon?
I need you at the darkest time
You hold me, and I have to shut my eyes
I’m shy, cannot be what you like.
Do check it out (and maybe listen to it several times) – it’s not the type of music I would usually listen to/listen to frequently; however, this song has gotten me completely hooked. In case you’d like to find out more about Years &Years, do so here.
