Artist Of The Day: The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die

Can you ever really beat jumping off a high rock into a lake on a really hot day? Sure, that game console you reserve special veneration for and that tablet which your eyes ignore even pretty girls for are both great, but once you slip outside the confines of the increasingly technological age and look outside your window, there is some serious excitement and beauty out there. Can a ‘like’ on a social networking site or a comment on your blog ever really provide the same lasting satisfaction that plunging head-first into a cool body of water from above can? No, you’re damn right it can’t.

Painting this picture of organic beauty on their latest album cover, The World Is A Beautiful Place... mirror their artwork with their natural brand of emo and post rock, and it brings all the joy one would expect from twinkly, bold and occasionally atmospheric music. Their 2013 release Whenever, If Ever is the pinnacle of their achievements so far, usurping the quality of their four previous EP’s whilst maintaining a careful balance of classic emo and experimental songs. Combining all of the traits which make the band’s latest release so noteworthy, "Heartbeat In The Brain" is the perfect place to begin if the pretty words above piqued your interest even a little. Listen to it below, then go find a body of water and a big rock to throw yourself off.
