On The Porch of The Future
Steve Stout's "Darker Days" is a song that's as reflective as it is hopeful. it's an indie-folk ballad that muffles time and love.
Having a view of the future — an understanding of its parameters and results — is something all artists struggle with. The uncertainty causes more pain than the day itself.
"Darker Days" takes those exact feelings but rubs them with a balm of romance and folky guitar. It takes all those melancholic feelings and twists them into a beautiful little string cave of connected ideas and feelings all clocking in at a distant romance.
The future looks quite romantic from this porch, my love.
