i love it all so much
i call … i want you back

listen: local natives – airplanes

the best part of airplanes by local natives is the way the strings come in during the second chorus and turn this 2008 indie pop song into an unforgettable treasue. local natives’ singer/keyboardist kelcey ayers  wrote these lyrics about the longing of getting to meet his late grandfather who was a great man and a pilot, that died before he was born. by remembering the meaning and challenging your own interpretation, the music showcases a sweet smile within the piano notes and an overwhelming pain of loss throughout the strength of the drums.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
