POETRY | ANKIT SHARMA

Would you love me till I die?
Would you hold me when I cry… darling?
Would you hug me when I’m alone?
Would you heal me when I’m wounded…darling?

Would you? Would you? Darling?

This life is long without anyone.
I need a reason to wake up form my sleep.
Nobody wants to be alone.
Nobody wants to be unloved.
Would you be there, when I wake up, Darling?

Would you kiss me, when I want to feel high?
Would you touch me, when I want to feel something, Darling?
Would you join me, when I’m broken?
Would you untangle me, when I’m confused, Darling?

Would you? Would you? Darling?

This life is lonely without anyone.
I need a reason to charge my phone at night.
Nobody wants to be lost.
Nobody wants to be untouched.
Would you call me, tonight? Darling?

I see you in the sky. I see you in my mirror.
Are these voices, just in my head?
I know you have moved on with someone. I know you have forgotten about us.
Was it all a joke to you, from the start?

Tell me, tell me, tell me.

I need a reason to write a song.
I need a reason to walk this world.
I need a reason to smile.
I need a reason to live.
I need a reason to call someone Darling.
But you aren’t that reason… Darling?

Darling?

Darling?

poetry | annie o sullivan

a log doused in gasoline
takes no time
at all to catch
on fire

but a log that catches
so fast
burns out
quickly.

watch the warm flames
dance
with delight
like it is the most
beautiful thing you’ve ever seen.

watch the fire
with fear as
it grows
because maybe it’s burning
too fast

hope, pray
the fire catches
the tree above and
lights the whole forest
up in flames

so it will burn
brighter
and slower
and become something
amazing

SONG REVIEW: GALANTIS’ “GOLD DUST”

Sadurdays is our weekly lifestyle report featuring reviews on music that inspires us, introspective websites, local events and more. This Week we’re giving you an Song review from Swedish duo Galantis‘, titled, Gold Dust.

song review | bryan j mangam

With the current saturation of electronic dance music in america, there are few artists who can rise above the crowd and offer an alternative to the drop-centric tunes being fed to audiences. Eschewing the cut-and-paste construction many other artists use, Swedish progressive house duo Galantis (Christian Karlsson & Linus Eklow) begin all of their  tracks from the ground up.

Following their self titled “Galantis” EP released last spring, the duo follows with their latest track, Gold Dust, set to be released this Monday 2/23 on Big Beat Records. Gold Dust begins with simple yet captivating piano work. As the melody builds, the emotive vocals are brought in and are sure to bring in the feels:

“Keep coming down the street. There’s a hollow in this house, whenever you go.”

What follows next in the chorus is pure euphoria. Providing carefully crafted chords and intricate instrumentation, their best strength is composing melody-driven progressive house tracks that work well in the clubs, as well as on the radio, a hard task to achieve.

With original songwriting, and a multi-layered sound, Galantis has a style all of their own; one that even non electronic music fans can appreciate.

9/10.
