I love the voice of Hannah Reid. Her voice is strong and the mellow, stirring and calming at the same time. And the lyrics she writes they are good too and I like everything about them.
This Band makes beautiful music.
Here is the original song by Kavinsky. I like both original and cover.
“As I age in the world, it will rise and spread, and be for this place horizon and orison, the voice of its winds. I have made myself a dream to dream of its rising, that has gentled my nights. Let me desire and wish well the life these trees may live when I no longer rise in the mornings to be pleased with the green of them shining, and their shadows on the ground, and the sound of the wind in them.” – Wendell Berry, Planting Trees.
“Akash Bhara Surya Tara Biswabhara Pran” by Rabindranath Tagore. And In Wonder And Amazement, I Sing.
The sky is full of the sun and the stars The universe is full of life Among all these, I have found a place And in wonder and amazement, I sing. The world is swayed By eternity’s rushing tide Rising and falling I have felt its tug in my blood Racing through my veins And in wonder and amazement, I sing. While walking in the woodlands With my feet, I have touched the blades of grass I have been startled by the flowers’ fragrance They have all maddened my mind The gifts of gladness and joy Are strewn all around And in wonder and amazement, I sing. I have pricked my ears I have opened my eyes I have bared my heart to the world In the midst of the known I have sought the unknown And in wonder and amazement, I sing.
