SONG OF THE DAY: 'Library Magic' by The Head and The Heart
  • FRIDAY, JULY 15, 2016

  • Posted by: Kirsten Spruch



In a world where synths and drum machines are sneaking their way into every song, it's hard to write a folk song that doesn't sound outdated. But Seattle-based, indie-folk band, The Head and The Heart, execute this perfectly on their new track, "Library Magic," off of their forthcoming album, Signs of Light.

This track is everything: It's fresh, pure, light, filled with perfectly harmonized vocals. "There will always be better days," they sing, as if they're talking to a loved one who's hurting, or a reassuring mother to a child. It's instant comfort. On the surface, it's a folk song, but if you dig deeper and listen closely, you'll find that it's on a totally different level. Dare I say that this could pass for a song by Peter, Paul and Mary? Well it could -- and listen to this song in 10 years and it will sound timeless, too.
