06-02-2014 // Must-Have of the Month: The Black Feathers - Strangers We Meet EP

Open Book. This song is, without any doubt, one of the finest songs you will hear this year. I promise. Start reading in an hour, for now; put this on repeat, fall madly in love, come back later.

Now that we've established the immense greatness of "Open Book", be ready for another shocker: there's more. Strangers We Meet is a 5-track EP released a little over a month ago and there are 3 beautiful songs on it. Three?! Yes, three! Plus 2 others: 10.000 Times is a song that for some reason doesn't do anything at all for me, I've started skipping it a few weeks ago and will continue to do so. And than we have "Open Book", the song of all songs, still takes my breath away everytime I hear it and on its way to musical heaven to shine there for the rest of my music-listening years.

The good thing about this EP is not just that one beautiful song I've been drooling over for the entire story so far, but the other songs just as much. Opening track "Strangers We Meet" is a great song. "You Will Be Mine" is almost as mesmerizing and perfect as the track I've mentioned too much in this review already and closing track "All Came Down" is slightly less than perfect by Black Feathers-standards, but there's 10.000s of bands that would kill for a song like this and still fuck it up.

Strangers We Meet by The Black Feathers is this months Must-Have of the Month for one simple reason: I can't stop listening to it. This is so incredibly beautiful and addictive that I'm waking up to it, riding to work with it, working with it, going home with it, taking showers with it, cooking dinner with it and go to bed with it. The only thing that does not go well with this beautiful EP is listening to other music at the same time.

If you spend a few dimes on just one album this month, may I suggest Strangers We Meet?! You'll love it!
