The artist(s) I choose for this week are: The Autumn Film.
Now, I’m willing to bet more than half of you have never heard of them. And for that, I am extremely sorry. You have been missing OUT!
I discovered “The Autumn Film” through www.thesixtyone.com. I was browsing one day about 2 months ago and I happened to stumble upon their song; “Wreck Of Innocence”. I was mesmerized by the song that I kept playing it over and over again. I looked for it online and sadly couldn’t find a place to download it. I showed it to a friend of mine who agreed with me that it was a truly beautiful song. A week later, I couldn’t help but buy their whole album. As I listened through the album, I realised that not a single song failed to take my breath away. Everything about their music is perfect! From Tifah Al-Attas’s deep, goose-bump-inducing voice to Dann Stockton’s rhythmic drums to Reid Phillips’s amazing guitar skills, there’s not a single flaw in this trio’s unbelievably hypnotizing beats and lyrics. If you have good taste in music, I guarantee that you will have their great album “Safe and Sound” on repeat for weeks to come. I know I did!
My favourite songs have to be “Safe and Sound”, “You”, and “Can This Be”. I also recently downloaded “Heart-Shaped Box” from their website, which is basically three songs plus a video that they’re sharing for free (I’ll link you guys at the bottom) and their song “Joy” brought serious tears to my eyes.
Now, it took me a while to realise why I loved these guys so much. I figured it out when I checked out their official website. Right in their Biography, it said;
“Like a post-collegiate Fiona Apple jamming with Snow Patrol, [The Autumn Film] serves up a piano-drenched sincerity topped off with a voice that’s wise and heartbroken beyond its years” ~The Onion
Now, anyone who knows me would know that Fiona Apple is my favourite artist ever. Reading that made me laugh because I realised that it was actually true! Of course, that isn’t the first or the only reason for my immense appreciation for their music. These guys are true geniuses.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find many high quality songs on Youtube, but I will share what I’ve found and will also give you guys the link to their profile on The Sixty One so you can give all their songs a listen with no charge required.
I hope (and I am sure) that you will love those guys as much as I have learned to.
