When days are busy and chaotic, I can imagine myself floating around in a glass bubble through the streets, untouched. It's all about my mindset and what I choose to focus my attentions on. What helps to bring me to this mindset is listening to music that has a raw and folksy-sound mixed with intelligent lyrics - songs that make me feel a little more nonchalant about the things I cannot control.
An example of an artist whose music I absolutely adore is Laura Marling. She's young, but has an incredibly complex and powerful voice. Her earthy music makes me feel as though life is simple again and that I am of the earth.
I know, this is probably very poetic of me, but please do take a listen to her lyrics. The song below, "Sophia," is my favorite from her. It starts out slowly, but then progresses to a more upbeat rhythm as if to depict a change in mood or to intensify a feeling:
What do you think? What song or musician do you like to hear when you are in need of a new mindset?
