In the mood for some CSNY harmonies infused southern rock?
Till a few weeks back I was familiar with only one song by Seattle rock band Band Of Horses, which was the ubiquitous No One’s Gonna Love You from their 2007 album Cease To Begin. I decided to dig into their back catalog starting with the said album and found it to be a great listen, chock a block with extremely melodic, well written songs.
The album is like a staple for great love songs. For me the best song on the album by far is Detlef Schrempf (nothing to do with the NBA player except well the name). I get goosebumps every time I hear the line ‘My eyes can’t look at you any other way’.. brrr :).
Other picks for me are No One’s Gonna Love You, which I believe has featured on every love songs mixtape that has ever been made after Cease To Begin came out and is yet to lose its poignancy and charm; and the beautiful Marry Song which again I gather is a regular at most weddings.
Listen to these three great songs below and if you like what you hear do yourself and pick up the album.
