BEST NEW SONGS: AOSOON - UNDER

10/5/15
Aosoon - Under

A lot of something out of nothing. That’s what British band Aosoon name means. Gantsta Folk is what they call there musical stylings. A Best New Song is what we call their newest single, “Under.”

In a fair and just world you would have already heard of Marisa Hylton and Manny Folorunso, but we live in a world in which you have to wade through a lot of BS to find out about the London duo. But if you’re reading this post, your ears are going to thank you. “Under” is a sparse, gorgerous song that immediately recalls “Youth” by Daughter. And much like that song, I can’t stop listening to this one either. Hear it for yourself below:

 

AOSOON “UNDER”

“Under” is off of Aosoon’s self-titled debut EP, out now.

We’ll leave you with the lyrics to “Under” below:

i'm not your usual, you see
i don’t take things for granted
life is no coincidence
it's what you make it

when we go under
we don’t stay down
we come up
it's a crazy world
you better keep your spirits up
when we go under
we don't stay down
we come up
it's a crazy world
you better keep your spirits up

so just breathe and exhale
just breathe and exhale
breathe and exhale
just breathe and exhale

you can choose to run off
or roll down the hill
my trains of thoughts lose me
i'm on some real shit here
dreams are reality
realities are make believe
dreams are reality
realities are make believe

when we go under
we dont stay down
we come up
it's a crazy world
you better keep your spirits up
when we go under
we dont stay down
we come up
it's a crazy world
you better keep your spirits up

spirits up
spirits up

so just breathe and exhale
just breathe and exhale
breathe and exhale
breathe and exhale
