I discovered Firekites through a great design blog I read. It’s a little odd that I read a design blog, considering the fact that I generally don’t care what things look like. I appear to have missed the gay gene where you’re supposed to have a flair for interior design (case in point my 30-year-old hand-me-down living room furniture).
But I watched the video and found myself much more carried away with the song than the video (which is, admittedly, pretty cool). The song is by an Australian band called Firekites and they make some subdued, mostly acoustic music that brings to mind Tunng or Sufjan Stevens (although is everything that is quiet compared to Sufjan? I think so. Oh well).
Here’s the video — it’s called Autumn Story.
