2023 Albums #4

I hear two songs from this and get the feels:

"Everybody's Dancing and I Want to Die" sends shivers up my spine. I very clearly remember sitting on a bus in Dalston in 2014, after a break up, listening to this and disappearing into my thoughts. It's a strange sensation to have such strong, sad feelings triggered when listening to a song, but also not want to stop because the song itself is so, so good.

The second song is "Boston Square". I don't have a story about that. It's just really fucking good.

I love Deaf Havana, although I usually find I jump around their back catalogue rather than listening to a whole album, so it's been a while since I've heard much of Old Souls. Listening to this in its entirety was a fun experience.
