Vladi and listener,
It’s often easy to be cynical about music videos, which oftentimes inane or indulgent, but it’s projects like “Fly for your Life” that validate the marriage of the two mediums. I’ll have to find another example of this combination done right for a future Song of the Week.
For now, you’ll have to settle for the audio side.
This Monday’s song brings to us Irish-inspired folk music from Australia (confused yet?) “The Miners Way” provides a trudging, oppressive rhythm as it describes a dismal life of poverty and hardship working in a mine.
Australian folk duet Gone Molly nail the vocals on this one, offering an atmospheric tune.
