Blackbird Blackbird - Give You Everything

A friend of mine recently told me that he's tired of every band having that "beach sound." Honestly though, in February right after walking back from class in the rain and eating lunch by myself, I really don't mind a boost of sunshine. Theres no denying this will sound great on the beach, but Blackbird Blackbird (along with several other contemporaries) seem to be moving away from a nostalgia-heavy aesthetic by throwing in live instrumentation and pushing vocals higher in the mix. More than anything else, "Give You Everything" sounds confident, and confidence is a seriously under-appreciated trait in music at the moment.
