#songoftheday / REVIEW: Lily & Madeleine – “Blue Blades”

I love Lily & Madeleine!  Talk about a super talented duo.  I think they’re my third favorite duo after Paola & Chiara and First Aid Kit.  “Blue bird’s body lies / And no one’s mourning,” they sing, their voices full of melancholy, the song itself quite haunting from its somber piano to its intoxicating atmospherics, which include ocean-like sounds and electro-flourishes.  Everything about this song is absolutely perfect and perfectly arresting.  So, put your day on pause for 4:23 and let them take you on a moody journey that might scare you a little but will ultimately relax you, providing temporary solace from whatever is stressing you today…
