Not sure if you’ve heard of Paperwhite. I discovered this song late last year after hearing my sister played another track from this brother-sister duo’s EP, Magic. On their website, they label themselves as “dream pop” and I think that’s a perfect description. Not so ethereal that it’s over-the-top lofty, but still floaty with a purpose. I always like that feeling of music taking you away, even for three minutes. I cherish those moments when I’ve been running around or my mind is racing with ideas or an heavy to-do list.
Take a listen.
I adore the blend of synthesizers and a great drum beat, with melodies that stick in your brain for a while. Great driving music or something to chill to. The lyrics also made me a sucker for “Galaxy”. Simple and yet beautiful.
All at once, we found each other.
Piece by piece, we built another world,
Out of something small.
One by one, the stars collided,
Two and two, we both unite.
Take me far away to our galaxy.
It’s most likely the hopeless romantic in me, but that verse just drew me in. Just too good.

Hope the beginning of your week starts well. You can do it!
