Tears of Hope Lost and Regained

Music makes me cry.

There are some songs that tap into emotions, an aural reflection of time, place and feelings that you cannot forget. Music is my saviour and the catalyst for opening me up to the rest of the world.

Meg & Dia seem to be the band that pries open my heart to let my emotions come pouring out in a torrent. They are worthy rivals to Tegan and Sara in terms of the finest songwriters in the world. This particular song resonates with me on so many levels.

The One comes off their latest EP It’s Always Sunny In Tillamook and encapsulates why I love the Frampton sisters so much. There is just so much emotion in this song, emotion that particularly resonates with me,

Today Meg & Dia released the first track of their upcoming album Cocoon called Love Is Dia’s songwriting is just extraordinary. In many ways whilst being musically related to The One in many ways Love Is is its polar opposite. ‘I know there is hope in hope itself’ is delightfully positive whereas in The One all hope is extinguished.

Both leave me sobbing.
