Song 12: Cave In – Inspire
Artist: Cave In
This song comes to me as a recommendation from my friend and co-worker Dave Isaak. The other day while sitting in the office at work I looked over to see Dave with his headphones in and plugging away at work. Curious to know what he was listening to I asked and he shared it was this song. He told me that it was a band he and his brother use to listen to years ago and that he recently rediscovered their music. Given that he had just rediscovered them himself it seemed fitting to this project that I take the time to explore their music for myself. Tonight while enjoying some vegan pizza with my pals Tom and Mike and having a bit of throwback as we flipped channels between hockey and WWE Smackdown I put the headphones in and gave this song a listen. On first listen, I wasn’t a huge fan, but after a couple more listen I came to appreciate it a bit more. It’s not really the type of music I find myself listening to much these days, but I think there would have been a time in my life that I enjoyed it more. Also, the music video looks like it would have been pretty fun to film.
365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
