by St. Grandson
And the heart just doesn't bother...
Come on, let's take a trip to Belgium. Out of places I'd rather be right now, it's right up there on the destination list. It's the home of delicious beer, waffles covered in melted chocolate, Jean-Claude Van Damme and the mighty fine music of dreamy indie-pop outfit, St. Grandson. Hailing from Ghent, the four-piece have crafted a totally serene track with 'Midnight Swim' that will leave you feeling cool, calm and collected. And wanting to know a whole lot more about St. Grandson.
'Midnight Swim' feels like the end of a perfect night with the closest of friends. Have you ever sat around watching the sunrise after having too much fun with a bunch of people that mean more to you than you can say? Sure you have. That content feeling, where everything seems clearer than usual, is the feeling I'm taking away from 'Midnight Swim'. And that can only be a good thing. I'm going to have to listen to this one quite a bit and I'm thinking you're going to want to listen to this one quite a bit too.
As a final note, I took a train from Bruges to Ghent while traveling around by myself in Belgium a couple of years ago. I was only there for a couple of hours, but had a delicious sandwich. So Ghent's pretty great in my book. So's St. Grandson.
