When I stumbled upon this trio of sisters from England… I confess, I played “Longrun” back to back (and back again). I played it in the mornings, in the afternoons, in the evenings… pretty sure this folk riff was even added to my workout playlist. How I know I truly love a song? I never ever tire of it. These three women have the capacity to woo you in any mood, to calm your senses and make you feel entirely happy and peaceful. Charming, beautiful, humble… do yourself a favor and take 7 minutes out of your day, press play, close your eyes. Breathe.
Emily, Jessica, Camilla… thank you.
“Lying, a dreamer dreaming beside me
The city sirens keep me awake
I know I’ll see you again in the long run…
… But we can’t be lovers ’cause I’m still afraid
Of leaving the things I love dearly”
