Listen to This: “Carolina” by Harry Styles

I know, it hasn’t been that long since I shared Harry Styles “From the Dining Table,” but seeing as it’s July and I’m still blasting these songs several times a week why don’t I go ahead and share another track? With lines like:
“She never saw herself as a west coaster
Moved all the way ’cause her grandma told her
“Towns, better swim before you drown”
and “I met her once and wrote a song about her” – Carolina has easily been one of my favorite tracks from the beginning. Not only is it a catchy song, but it also captures are a certain sentiment. Have you ever been on a really incredible first date, or even just first meet that turns into spending hours with this new person finding out all kinds of little details of their life story? Those encounters will have you drunk on serotonin, and that new found person will be taking up all the empty spaces in your mind with their laugh, their smile, their cute little anecdotes. We all have our own interpretations, but those fun, new, flirty feelings even if they’re fleeting, are what “Carolina” reminds me of every time I listen. If you didn’t give his album a listen the first time around, definitely check it out. “Carolina” is a great place to start!

Listen to This: “From the Dining Table”

Harry Styles long awaited self-titled solo album was released last week. I waited to listen until Saturday morning (after loving the new radio hit “Sign of the Times”) and I CANNOT STOP LISTENING. The whole album is so dang good. Don’t brush it off as a teeny bopper album, or you’ll be missing out. One of my favorite tracks on the album (too hard to choose – addicted to “Meet Me In the Hallway” “Sweet Creature” “Ever Since New York” “Two Ghosts” – okay all of them, I guess) is “From the Dining Table.” I think one of the endearing things about this album is that the lyrics are so relatable. Don’t hate me for this comparison, but the fist thing that came to mind was AM by the Arctic Monkeys. The songs are so emotional and heartfelt, but there are also songs you can move to, and they’re perfect for jamming out in the car. OK, honestly, they’re perfect for everything because I also listened while I was running this morning. “From the Dining Table” is the last track on the album, the imagery is so vivid, but also the longing is palpable. His vocals are smooth, and the music is original. This guy is talented, and hopefully his true artistry is recognized.
