“Theres a colour in your eyes that nobody knows but me, All my love is circling the drain now.” Songs such as these shouldn’t fly under the radar, songs that tug at your heartstrings, and move you to your core. Save the Date is the new indie rom com that was released last week. In one scene with Sarah (Lizzy Caplan) and Jonathan (Mark Webber) with Houses “Soak It Up,” a gorgeous track from 2010 that would be a great soundtrack to a late night swims. Houses released a single in February titled “The Beauty Surrounds.” The single is focused on heartbreak, but bring a beauty to heartbreak. Just like Phosphorescent “Song for Zula” it introduces a hope and strength that heartbreak song can miss a lot of time, focusing mostly on the negative out coming of the situation, but not touching on the clarity that is opens as well. I am glad to see Houses back, and looking forward to hearing more.
