A few days ago, Fleet Foxes, one of my favorite bands, released their new album, Shore. Somehow, I was not aware of it until today. But I finally listened to it, delved into its beauty during a morning hour-long writing session.
I won't review the music; art is so personal to me, that I'm reluctant in talking about it publicly. I do it, but rarely. Also, I don't know that much about music. I listen to multiple genres, have my choices, but am not a reviewer. In any way.
I was not surprised by the album, all of the songs seem to be a natural evolution of their previous work. It was expected, but still pleasing.
The album gave me a sense of hope I haven't felt often in 2020. It's adventurous, exploratory, but also soothing and fulfilling, all at the same time. I feel empowered and comforted. So beautiful.
It's been tough this year. For all of us, in one way or another. Many things have been taken away from us. All but one, it seems; the ability to share hope, empower.
Even the smallest bit out there.
