Lay me down in golden dandelions
'Cause I've been waiting for this moment all my life
Follow me into the dark
She said lay me down in golden dandelions
'Cause I've been waiting
Spotify describes Barns Courtney (whose name sounds totally backward in a fun way) as "splitting the difference" between Ed Sheeran and Mumford & Sons. I suppose, for many that might sound terrible. I was a bit intrigued, and I'm happy I gave him a listen. His voice actually reminds me a lot of one of my recent favorites, Sameer Gadhia from Young The Giant. I can't say I like all his tracks, because I don't, but "Golden Dandelions" is fantastic and I think if Barns can avoid the bro-pop trap, he'll be good.
