No one ever tells you how difficult it will be to remember things as you get older. Holding onto memories is like trying to grab a rope that someone keeps tugging on right before you touch it. I’d argue that your memories only get more important as you grow. It’s nourishing for not only yourself, but your past selves, to remember all the stages of life you’ve seen. Even the simplest things can be so calming to us now.
Emerging indie artist Sister Gemini is all too familiar with this need to remember. Her latest single Scooter Song was written from that very fear of losing your past. What she’s created in that fear’s wake is something magical. The track feels like sitting on the porch of your childhood home on a late August night. It makes you want to dance around on the wet grass with your dog and then let out a happy cry. The warm buzz of the guitar, like flickering through a slideshow and home videos, and her angelic vocal tone create a truly cozy blend. Much like the bittersweet nature of nostalgia, Scooter Song is a dichotomous piece seamlessly mixing together happy with sad, light with heavy and smiling with crying.
