Just listened to a great little interview/acoustic set with Afie and the band as they get set to play SXSW. Can’t say enough about how talented they are. Those harmonies are butter. Best of luck to them.
“This is song about the death of a relationship. On one hand, you mourn its loss. On the other, you celebrate all that was good about it while acknowledging all of its flaws. It’s about acceptance and revelation. It’s just a song that’s trying to make sense of something that was complex. That’s a tough job for any song to do, but this succeeds in its simplicity.” –Afie

and i held my own, still i rattled your bones, i said some awful things and i take them back. if we were to try again, just remember when, before we were lovers i swear we were friends.
slowing it down a bit with this gorgeous song from bahamas, the solo project of toronto based guitarist afie jurvanen. his past musical collaborations have included feist and his influence on her music is undeniable after listening to this song. the melody in this song is so sweet and is accomplished with little more than a guitar, light percussion, the occasional piano riff, phenomenal back up vocals and afie’s stunning voice that was seemingly born for indie-folk perfection. my favorite part of this song is it’s purity; there’s so much beauty sometimes in simplicity. if you’re a fan of m.ward, andrew bird, jack johnson or the like, then definitely give this one a listen.
