I will always be a sucker for sentimental songs. Is that part of being Filipino?
Strangely, I discovered this song while watching ESPN during my regular morning workday routine. It was playing in the background of an emotional video and I had to find out about the band. As one YouTube commenter stated, this is a song Coldplay wish it wrote. True, I do get Coldplay vibes from this song (and Bon Iver and Snow Patrol and Keane and Mumford & Sons and The Fray and…). The brilliant music video itself tugs at the heart and it might as well be clips from some movie. I love it when music videos actually have some kind of storyline like all those random South Korean videos I used to watch all the time.
Here’s another music video from the band for their single “High Hopes.” All I can say in response to this video is WTF?!
