Heaven I Know, Gordi’s Beautiful and Powerful New Single Just Released

Oh my God! For all Gordi’s fans, you must be feel so overwhelm when you hear this news. Yes! Gordi finally released her brand new single called Heaven I Know. This song actually already released since June 12th 2017, but how can I not know about this before. So sorry for the late news. 😦

Honestly, I’m so speechless and I think I almost cry when the first time I hear Heaven I Know. I don’t know how to describe about how awesome this song, but this is so beautiful. Gordi definitely a musical genius. The combination from all elements in this song makes everything so perfect to hear. From the repeated whispered rhythm at the beginning then Gordi’s beautiful voice with piano chords and a simple bytes, the electronic sounds, trumpet, the looping, and the sound layers at the end of the song. The lyrics also makes me speechless. Somehow, the way Gordi sing this song makes people understand how she feels towards the lyrics in this song.

I just read about the review of Heaven I Know in Atwood Magazine website. This article is so touching, beautiful, and makes me more understand about this song. The writer wrote about Heaven I Know is as much about dealing with loss as it is about growing older and accepting adulthood’s compromises and the challenges you can’t win. Gordi also said, “With a friendship, you almost throw more at it than you would a romantic partner, because when a friendship breaks it’s so much more heart-breaking”.

Yes, it is something different when you have to lose someone who really important for you, who really understand you more than you do, who made you a better person, or someone who already become your own sanctuary. That kind of relationship has more powerful connections than romantic relationship, but one thing that we can not prevent is time. As the time goes by, as we grow older, we will face so many things that might prevent us to have direct communication with our closest friend. Maybe they got a boyfriend, got engaged, get married, move to another place, have a children, got a new job, and suddenly you lose them because you are no longer their priority. Somehow, I know we can’t prevent all the adulthood things because everybody grows up someday, but I’m sure no one wants to lose their closest friend. That is the struggle that we have to face in the future when we’re adult. But I wish I can keep my closest friend forever and always make them as my priority. Good luck to all of you out there who fight for your closest one because you know it is worthy to fight for. Heaven I Know That We Tried, right? 🙂

Oh my! I think I already talk to much. But, I can’t wait to hear Gordi’s debut album Reservoir which will released in August 25th 2017. So excited! For now, why don’t you try to hear Gordi’s beautiful and powerful new song, Heaven I Know. Just press the Spotify button below and share your thoughts and opinion towards this song.

I definitely love Ella Vos more and more. Somehow, she always success to amazed me with her music. Last Monday, Ella Vos just released her awesome brand new song called You Don’t Know About Me. Melodically beautiful, lyrically powerful. Maybe that’s how I describe about this song. You Don’t Know About Me has a mid-tempo melody of electronic pop. The combination between the thumping sound of bass, finger snaps, and beautiful voice from Ella Vos definitely makes this song so powerful and really worth to hear. Until now, I’m still addicted to this song.

Not just totally beautiful from the melodies, this song also has a powerful lyrics. Ella Vos gave us a powerful message to all woman through this song. In one source that I found, Ella Vos’ said,

“… I wrote a song about ignorance. About all those little comments we combat throughout the day. About choosing to replace those words with empowering statements. This is my body. About learning to be strong. About not letting anyone tell me who I should or shouldn’t be. Because you don’t know about me.”

So, do not let yourself down or falling apart just because people judgments about who you are. Because they don’t know you, they don’t know what you’re going through right now, they don’t know anything about you. So, keep your head up, be strong, and do not let yourself drown into sadness because sadness is just an absence of happiness.

Wow, I think I already talk too much towards this song. But now, I let you hear this beautiful song from Ella Vos, You Don’t Know About Me.

Absolutely and totally a great treat for me.

From some sources that I read, Kate Nash explained about the meaning of this song which I think really deep, motivate, and powerful lyrics. “Call Me is about going through a lot of stuff and surviving it, hitting your lowest point and coming back from that. Once you have, you can help other people get through it too. It’s about pain being useful as it can be used as advice and support and wisdom when other friends/best friend/loved ones go through rough patches. Call on me when you go through it.”

Album Review

Album Review: To Bring You My Heart from The Katherines

First, I have to tell you that I just need one song to falling in love with this awesome and talented ladies from Vancouver, The Katherines. Right! Another Canadian musician already stole my ears with their great music. Many source called them as ‘Canadian Haim’, but from my opinion their music totally different. Kate Kurdyak, Lauren Kurdyak, and Hansen-Boucher definitely brought something unique to hear.

I accidentally found one of The Katherines’ song, Primitive, through the discover section on Spotify and somehow, I falling in love with this song since the first hear. Then, I feel so curious about their music and I found out they just released their debut LP on last January 2017 called To Bring You My Heart. This album includes 13 songs track list and I have to admit that this album was some kind of great treat for me.

The Katherines introduced us into something unique and refreshing in their debut LP. They bring their own music character and makes each song has its own muse. It makes me feel so overwhelmed and get exciting when I listened their album. Somehow, I can find so many music genres in their music, from pop, rock, dance, R&B, electro, even 60’s pop-blues or the combination between genres. Now I understand why so many source called them as ‘Harmony Masters’.

Cherry Lips definitely a great song to start the journey of this album. This song has a nice drum beat and beautiful sound of dreampop guitar. Both melodies combined with Kate’s smooth voice makes this song so good to hear. Ultra Violet has more beat than other songs with the touch of dance-pop elements. In the third song, The Katherines made a duet with Frederick to sing an interesting synth-pop song called Better Off Now. Their voice just perfect each other. Next song is one of my most favorite song in this album, Primitive. In this song, The Katherines collaborate with Charlie Kerr and Steve Bays to write this song. You can hear the sound of electronic percussion and 80’s keyboard tones and makes this song so catchy to hear. Honestly, I can’t stop listening to this song until now. 🙂

You will hear a great combination between the electronic and classic instruments like cello and violin in breakup ballad song, Heart On The Table. While Minefield and Blank Page represented pop-rock song in this album with the touch of electric guitar. You still can hear string instrument combined with pop melodies in To Bring You My Heart. KiDs also has the touch of electro-pop elements with a catchy melodies.

You definitely has something different from the other song. The Katherines brings the sound of 60’s pop-blues melodies in this song. Definitely something catchy, unique, and refreshing. Wrong Side Of The Bed is another my most favorite song of this album. The pop-dance melodies with the touch of cheerful and playful guitar sound makes this song so great to hear. Tomorrow and Replay brings also has a great melodies and become a perfect way to end the journey of this album.

Overall, this is one of the most enjoying album I’ve ever heard in 2017. The way The Katherines introduce their music character is so unique and refreshing. They are definitely something. I think they will be huge really soon. So, if you haven’t heard their debut LP yet, why don’t you try to listen it and I’m sure you will have a unique experience when you listened this album. Don’t forget to share your thoughts about this album by give comment in our music blog. Thank you and enjoy the music folks!
