For all that we’ve got, don’t let go.

September 5: Eavesdrop – The Civil Wars

If you aren’t familiar with The Civil Wars, do yourself a huge favor and cue them up on Spotify right now. Enjoy what’s there, because sadly, that may be all we ever get from this talented duo – they’re currently estranged, not touring to promote the album, and the possibility of reconciliation and new music seems pretty slim.

Their entire new album, which has been on a steady rotation in my apartment since its release (sorry, neighbors), is incredible from start to finish. Eavesdrop isn’t the best song on the album, nor is it the most emotional. But it’s one of my favorites, and even though it’s a breakup song, the image that fills my mind is that of a long, romantic kiss in the middle of the pouring rain. I’ve read often that it sounds like it should be on a movie soundtrack – I definitely want it on mine.
