The Middle East – Blood

February 11, 2010 at 12:40 pm (Pop, Songs)

This track comes to you courtesy of Kendra, ~*my girlfriend*~. She put it on a mix she made me and it’s been stuck in my head ever since. The Middle East are a…uh…somethingtet (I can’t seem to find information on exactly how many group members there are, but it sounds like a good number)¬†out of Townsville, Australia. This track is beautiful and it’s a little long–though I generally find that contemporary pop songs could almost always do with a bit of trimming down, this one uses every measure effectively. It develops slowly, artfully, gracefully over five and a half minutes and culminates in one of the most tremendous, triumphant, and beautiful choruses I’ve ever heard. Take a listen.
