Session #7: Aislyn
A Passion Pit and his songbird mate,
collaborate on something we're glad they found time to create.
Getting the two together is hard enough,
and as a couple, we're sure they'd agree that it's tough.
Long stretches apart sprinkled with days at home,
could be one day in Brooklyn, the next one in Rome.
But there's a noticeable bond, silent and strong,
That's obvious between them, underlying their song.
Ian's on-the-road tunes make you wiggle and move,
with Heads asleep and Secrets small, it's a constant groove.
But when your tired old bones lay horizontal for the night,
and arise the next morning, constricted and tight,
it's Aislyn you want, when you're ready to wake,
to stretch your legs long and rid your body of ache.
With its top note seductive, relaxing and sweet,
It lets you swim in its calmness without ignoring its beat.
While their time on the couch is much more intimate and raw,
Both these songs and their record have left us in awe.
There’s an upbeat lull, one that doesn’t put you down,
Invigorating, refreshing and lovely all around.
No matter which way you cut it, on the ugly couch or not,
Aislyn’s no side project that should be forgot.
So collapse into morning’s deep yellow glow,
And to Ian and Sofia, give your warmest hello.
