“Between The Wars” – The Young’uns

The Young’uns completely own this Billy Bragg classic.

Watch the New Tori Forsyth Video “Black Bird”

Tori Forsyth

I. Love. This. Song. So. Much.

The new track from alt-country singer-songwriter Tori Forsyth is the old-time infused “Black Bird”. The song is the title track of Forsyth’s debut EP from last year.

“I wrote “Black Bird just after a relationship breakdown,” Tori Forsyth explained. “The song is about the importance of moving on and letting go rather than feeling down and dwelling upon the pain. I imagined myself speaking words of advice to another woman going through the same experience while writing “Black Bird”. I hope that women will listen to the track and feel strong and empowered. Independence is an amazing thing.”

Check out the video for “Black Bird” below:
