Where the Music Meets is an online magazine dedicated to promoting new music and new alternative bands. But the basis of everything, what inspires everything, is always the notion of great music. And above all, we like to think we are all about great songs, regardless of who creates them. That is why we cannot stay indifferent when a big well-known band releases a super song.
About one week ago, Kings of Leon released the 2nd and self-titled single of their newest and forthcoming seventh studio album, WALLS (October 14th via RCA Records). WALLS, is the pure definition of a great song. One that immediately echoes inside every human-being, regardless of how cold he considers himself to be. In what seems to be a brutal demonstration of emotional convalescence – just like the previous but more rocky Waste a Moment – the track supports itself heavily on the heart-felt tone of Caleb’s voice and the beautiful simplicity of an acoustic guitar. And it is amazing how it grows from beginning to end. From a Springsteen feeling, to a louder chorus that makes it impossible not to be felt through the bones, and sung out loud.
Walls really come down with this. In what is probably the best accomplished song of the year. Kings of Leon, just gave us a keeper. A song for all troubled moments. A track that no matter how many times it plays, it will always help you keep going, see things from a necessary perspective, and make you able to forgive.
