Why do we like this?

Life is a strange game. You think you have things figured out, everything in its pretty little place, when suddenly the earth quakes and shatters. In the fallout, you desperately cling to what you know. Me? I snake my arms around music and hold on for dear life.

A few weeks ago some dear friends were soothing me with wine and love, and gifted me with this remarkable song. For my 50th Indie Shuffle review, it’s especially important that I contribute a song I passionately love, which is why I am ready to release “Dove Season” to you.

I know you know this L.A.-based two-piece. Angela Gail and Jeffrey Jacob are the masterminds behind “Peaches” and “Stand Up.” We love their quilt-like covers, quirky attire, and weekend electro-pop. But this track? This is the song that will elevate In The Valley Below in your heart and music catalog.

"Dove Season's" aggressive opening undertones are deceiving, a confident facade. The artists’ absurdly wise words hang between them, each line feels like a patient grenade. Keep listening and hear that confidence falter as their voices cautiously circle each other-- shark to prey.    

You can’t choose your love.
You can’t choose your love.

It is the chorus that makes this particularly magnificent song so exceptional. Gail and Jacob’s harmonies collapse onto each other and lean against the most broken, mirrored pieces of this world. Let go.

Everything about this bittersweet song is perfection. I hope it heals you, soothes you, surprises you. I hope you love it as much as I do. 

If you need to, hold it close. Until everything stops shaking.
