Not all music requires lyrics to speak to the soul.
Sometimes, getting lost between tones and beats are exactly what our bodies need to relax. While each instrument’s tune and field recordings of nature and bustling cities are purposeful, Host Bodies do a great job of creating an atmosphere that feels incredibly natural in their newest single “Accept”. As beautiful tones burst with sunshine and warm rain, “Accept” from James Collector and Nick Hess brings listeners into a magic mindset of peace and acceptance.
“‘Accept,’ the single off Diamondfruit, begins with a slow build of layered strings that drops away into warm, restful ambience. When the lead guitar breaks through, the song hits its peak, a sonic vantage point where transcendence meets chill. The song title takes it name from one of Jack Kerouac’s writing essentials, ‘Accept Loss Forever.’ It’s a statement so crushing that the band felt it would be unjust to take out of context, but the sentiment pervades the song’s intermingling surrender and hope, as if the only way for new doors to open is to let old ones close.” – Host Bodies
As Jack Kerouac said himself, an essential writing technique harnesses “The unspeakable visions of the individual”, felt throughout this new single from Host Bodies, inspired by their home state of Colorado. Relax and enjoy.
