One of the best feelings in the world is listening to a song and having it take you back to a different time or place. Whether it’s missing the golden California sun when I listen to ‘Emoticons’ by The Wombats or the feeling of nostalgia that rushes over me when I listen to Lorde’s ‘Ribs’ and think about my time living in Melbourne, if a song can bring me back to a special time in my life the song itself automatically becomes special to me.
The latest song that took me on a “feels-trip” was Racoon Racoon’s latest single ‘Dream Chorus.’ The second I heard it I was brought back to the time I spent in the French Riviera last summer. Swimming in the clearest blue waters, taking the train to the neighboring towns, going to Monte Carlo with a random guy from Tinder, eating half of France’s baguette supply…. this song definitely had me thinking of the French Riviera. If you are looking for a song that’s mellow, breezy, or you just want to feel like you’re at the beach, ‘Dream Chorus’ should be your go-to.
The duo also released a video to go along with the song and it’s the closest thing to nostalgic perfection that I will most likely ever witness. The lyrics are layered overtop of clips from the classic films ‘A Street Car Named Desire,’ ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’ ‘The Wild One,’ ‘Notorious,’ and ‘On The Waterfront.’ It will make you feel all the feels. Watch the video below and stream the song on Spotify! Also, be sure to follow Léa and Léo on Facebook and Instagram so you can listen to their EP as soon as it drops on April 13th!
