This song is almost opposite to my last post (but compliments it with slightly somber lyrics). It empowers you and is filled with passion and movement.
Its the sort of song that I can definitely imagine being in a movie, or a movie trailer.
The vocals sound a bit like Lana del Ray. I think the world will be hearing a lot more of this Zara Kershaw, considering how much people ate up Lana del Ray’s music, despite her start as an indie artist appealing to the hipster-alternative crowd.
I guess I’d describe this genre as pop, which isn’t a genre I used to post much about, but I really like her voice and this song makes me want to get out and change my life for the better, which is always a nice feeling.
Zara Kershaw- Landslides:
I’ve decided its finally time to resurrect this old blog. My life has been feeling a little dry lately, and the last time I posted seriously on this blog, my life was filled with inspiration and creativity. So I’m hoping that this return will bring me back in touch with that part of myself.
I’m going to start my return with a couple songs that have made me feel something lately. They both emote the same lethargic but almost pleading feeling with similar chord progressions, tempos, and haunting vocals (and lyrics). I just really love the ethereal sounds in the vocals and the way they fit with the slow electronica in both songs. Its the sort of music you’d listen to in a beautiful but low-key bar with very dim lighting.
This first song is the more recent of the two. The lyrics seem to pair well with the sort-of stale, idle, and apathetic way i’ve been feeling lately. That makes me sound so sad (which i’m not, i’m just uninspired), but I wouldn’t really describe the song as sad, just as being contemplative.

This second song is a little older, but evokes the same sort of idea as the previous song. Its odd to me how similar they are, but I love them both very much.
