When the synth explodes half way through the word “visions,” I find myself hungry for teen spirit, waxing nostalgic for a time when everything was as simple, yet as dramatic, as this song.
There’s a scene in The Perks of Being a Wallflower where the main character Charlie stands up on the back of a truck bed,as he and his friends are driving down a night tunnel, and says, “I can see it. This one moment, when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song on that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.”
Although WRLD’S “Visions” has less words, it takes me to that place, when we drove for the hell of it, because we finally could head towards the rest of our lives, because it was still awaiting us.
The duo of Les Priest and Jake Goss hails from Nashville, Tennessee and is breaking into the scene one special track at a time. To hear their debut “Communicate,” which we shared back in May, head here.
