I know I just recently posted another of his songs, but I am on a serious Saunders/London Grammar kick right now. This song in particular blows my mind every time – I react to it emotionally before I can comprehend cognitively what’s going on. That, in my mind, is a sign of a truly powerful artist.
“Good women lie with losers everyday” – something that is very dear to my heart, the idea that a wonderful, beautiful person will settle for less. Why? I’m still figuring it out. And I love that this song discovered me just when I needed it.
This, in my mind, is a perfect song and video. The performers are humble, their eyes turned down and inwards rather than catching the attention of the camera – the full focus of the song is on the beautiful, broken refrain. I love their unconventional style and simple melody line. Gorgeous performance.
I would highly recommend looking up various other Burberry Acoustic pieces. The settings are always lovely, and the songs beautiful.
