There's no better word to describe this album than nostalgic. As a kid Cold[play, Mumford & Sons and Radiohead was almost all I listened to but none of them stood out as much as Coldplay and especially this album. There's not one song from this album that has gotten old after all these years. Every time I listen to this album I'm hit with a large sense of nostalgia and remember all the good parts of being a care free childhood.
Cosmo Pyke is one of my favorite artist to listen to and is a big influence on how I'd like my music to be. His songs constantly pick up and slow down in pacing and the tone of his songs shift from happy to sad multiple times a song. This is why I can never get bored listening to his songs because they're never repetitive. One of the best examples of this is "Wish You Were Gone" from his Just Cosmo EP.
Peach Pit is probably my favorite band next to Cage the Elephant and Coldplay but they are a huge influence in the music. Their music is such a big influence to me because all of their songs put me in a good mood no matter how I'm feeling when I listen to and that's the vibe I want my music to induce when other people listen to it.
