English indie rock band pops out a new video for their single ‘Ride Against The Wind’ and what can we say. If we had a motorcycle we’d ride out there right now and have the wind go through our hair. Well, we only have bicycles (2 wheel variety) so we’ll skip that. Instead we’ll write about the single, which is bodacious and righteous, as per Bill & Ted.
It’s calming really. The mood of this single makes us put our heads out the car window. Just like a puppy. Just like little kids do. And that’s exactly how ‘free’ we feel listening.
There are just several things that songs should try to do: make it fun, accessible, relatable, and make us ‘feel’. And that’s what ‘Ride Against The Wind’ does quite well.
With this, there are no alterior motives, but just setting a frame for a day-dream delight of a trip.
Simple. Fabulous. No stress.
We’d reviewed their single ‘Sweet Divide’ prior. Check it out [HERE].
