Why Should I Stay?
Over the past several years, there has been a folk revival that we’ve all been witnesses to. A few bigger names that come to mind are Mumford and Sons, Bon Iver, and even Dan Mangan. At times, some of the bigger names in the folk scene end up writing songs that don’t feel as genuine as they might want you to believe. It’s hard to explain how songs feel forced at times, but these efforts end up being much more popular than a song from Timid, the Brave for example.At this time of year, myself, along with many others find themselves under the gun and under a lot of stress. Whether it’s during the busy period and you’re trying to finish things up, or you can’t get any sleep, or even if it’s right after you’re in the clear, you just want to relax. Then you realize you don’t know how to relax and you just end up feeling really restless. It’s one of the most frustrating feelings one can experience. This song is the perfect transition if you want to switch from feeling urgency to feeling relief. To all those other students pulling their hair out over finals, good luck. It’ll all be over soon. I hope all of the music we have shined a light on here helps you get through your endeavours, whether they be finals, or anything where music helps you make it.
