You know how I say, us music bloggers, we’re all out there crawling the web, searching for something? We’re all panting after that feeling of yes, that feeling of that’s it, I love that. Problem is, what we love is constantly changing — human nature being what it is. But we know it when we hear it, right? That’s why we’re always snatching more music out of the air.
So, it’s apropos that the new EP from San Francisco quartet LoveLikeFire is called, “An Ocean In the Air.” This music is so ridiculously good that if it was a full-length, it would make my top five best of the year. It’s strong music; it punches you right in the face instead of dancing around you wearing wings or whatever. I love it so much that I can’t believe I never heard it before. Vocals sung by Ann Yu, with appropriate mysterious lyrics; instrumentals played richly and distinctly by misters Parker, Farrell, and Kissinger, respectively.
