May 16th, 2012  |  by Nels Thoreson   |  Published in Songs of the Day

Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Gainesville, Florida’s own, And the Giraffe, with their song, “Underground Love,” off their album, Something for Someone, which can be downloaded for FREE here.  The duo consists of best friends, Nick Roberts and Josh Morris, who take on the ambient dream-folk genre, and do it well.  The video below was shot in Los Angeles, California, over the course of 2 days, and is one of the best music videos I’ve seen in some time.  The video was directed by Harrison Sanborn, with cinematography done by Michael Bolten and Harrison Sanborn.

It is days like this, where I happen upon bands like And the Giraffe, that really remind me how fortunate I am to have started The Troubadour’s Road.  The constant search for music is one I gladly take on, and it truly is an honor to be able to share the music of so many talented artists.  And the Giraffe is one of those bands, and will be one to continue to follow as they take on their musical journey.

These words find their place in the song, “Underground Love,”

“Falling under, underground love

The blindsiding wildfire crept through the fog

It ended our dreams and ended us all

A new temptation followed thereafter,

A desire to move – to move on faster

Ask me again in 500 years

If death on my doorstep tingled my fears

If pleas for clean shadows had any chance at all

Or if underground love got lost, lost in the fog

Can you please forgive me for my sins?

I’ll love you forever when our new life begins

Be it underground or on top the world,

I’ll shred those blank pages

I’ll save those old words

Cause I’m falling under

Underground love

Falling under

Underground love

Ask me again in 500 years

If death on my doorstep tingled my fears

If pleas for clean shadows had any chance at all

Or if underground love got lost, lost in the fog…”
