    Weird, I don't hear Finn at all in his voice. Agree to disagree I guess.

    here i am sobbing in my van/bedroom at 1 am to "say yes to life". been a while since a song's hit me this hard. and "persevere", so heartbreaking.

    this is incredible. i'm so inspired.

    it's strange all the things that i've run from are the things that completeness could come from.

    and the lines at the store look like lines on a beautiful face

    Something in your chemistry has changed Supporter

    Oh that's sweet. I've still been listening quite a bit although with David Ramirez and The National both out, and Noah Gundersen next week my listening will decline somewhat. But Go Farther in Lightness is a perfect fall/winter album in my opinion and don't see this falling out of rotation anytime soon.

    Ok after reading through this thread I'm convinced there is enough interest here to warrant a live listening party. I loved reading everyone who has posted their thoughts in this thread so far. Thank you for that.

    Tagging more of my peeps so that they can get on this train too @fenway89 @KennedyBN @teebs41 and Australia's official Chorus resident @Mary V

    Single artwork is just as moving as the song itself

  15. I'm in! I'm just gutted I only got into them a few days ago. They played a show in Melbourne two weeks ago and I wasn't there. Next time I'll be there!

    You're lucky they are from Australia. They will definitely be back. Been following them on social media for awhile and they plan a ton in Australia so definitely not a question of IF but WHEN at this point. You will see them one day i'm sure. They def don't come to North America too much but that's to be expected so its all good
     
  17. I'll definitely end up seeing them. Their next show in Australia is a festival next year, and I'm sure there will be a normal tour after that too. They're off to Europe/UK next so hopefully a North American tour is next! They played a 5.5k venue in Melbourne, interested to hear what size venues they're playing overseas, should be super intimate
     
  18. Been listening to this pretty consistently lately. Tag me for the listening party, please! Sounds like a grand ol' time.

    They covered Bowie's Heroes for the new Justice League film.
