Nada Surf‘s current album is called Lucky. They took time to write a pretty long text on their liner notes about it. I love what they wrote, so I thought I’d share it with you:
“From a zillion angles we are lucky, we should remember that we are, we need to be reminded that we are. If we forget, we have to be reminded again. The band is lucky. We’re lucky to have each other. And off the record, we’ve all had some really rotten luck over the last few years, and still have to manage to get up in the morning and feel good. Not easy. But if you remember how lucky you are to have what you have… And seriously, it is starting to feel like the world is really about to fall apart, so it also feels dark.”
I totally fell in love with this song: see these bones (click on it to listen). Matthew Caws wrote it after visiting the catacombs in Rome.
