Happy Friday! What a great way to start the weekend with "Psalms 23" by Xylaroo. With those who don't know what Psalms are, they are poems recited by King David praying to G-d. This particular Psalms is that "whether in a verdant meadow or in a parched desert, G-d provides man's every need." So now that you know the back story let's see how the melody and lyrics connect! Xylaroo uses sounds like an electric guitar, sounds of rain, and drum to give that indie/psychedelic tone to this song. The melody is calming and in a way entrancing to help you delve into her story. From her lyrics she takes you in a story where at first it seems hopeless, but there is someone who is her savor, and she keeps reminding herself that there is a strong impression and in the end she'll get what she needs and all will be okay. At least that's what I grasped from this song. What do you think, would love to hear your answer in the comments below!
