“The night before prom came to embody this very tense and juvenile feeling of a life-changing moment. You know the feeling that everything will be different tomorrow? There is so much melancholia attached to it, but also excitement. It’s beautiful in a way. You never know how things will turn out, or what choices will make sense in the end.” - Augustine
Though my prom-equivalent was many years ago, I think this sentiment is still easy to relate to. Throughout our lives, do we not have several proms to which we go, knowing that on the back of it, change is going to come?
Augustine's "Prom" falls into the category of one of my indie-pop guilty pleasures. After one listen, I think you'll see just why. With a melody that will make you dance along in your bedroom and falsetto vocals that guide you along from above, "Prom" decorates melancholic meaning with a fun melodic corsage, and I am SO glad I asked her to be my date.
