Here we are again on music monday and it seems like I was just writing a post yesterday. The weeks are flying by. This week I’ve decided to share with you a band that I’ve been listening to off and on for a quite some time. That band happens to be Relient K. I was introduced to them in my early teen years by a few friends and didn’t really pay that much attention until their album “mmhmm” came out. There was something about it that even to this day just makes me feel like every song is speaking directly to me. In terms of lyrics it’s quite a bit darker than their previous material and if you know anything about my music, you’ll probably see why I relate. 🙂

Aside from the album mentioned above, I’ve just recently been listening to their latest effort called “Forget And Not Slow Down.” It’s a mix of sounds and each song seems well thought out and unique in its own right. However, the title track caught my ear right away and I have a video below that includes the music and the lyrics so you can follow along. Specifically what I focus on is the depth of the lyrics. For a band that has the “pop punk” sort of sound it is rare to find lyrics that are this well thought out. At first you might be bobbing your head and tapping your foot along to the beat, but take a moment to really soak up the lyrics and I think you’ll appreciate the message here. The theme of this song is something that’s been on my mind lately while I try to stay more in the present instead of dwelling on the past and worrying about the future. I hope you enjoy this one and make sure to check out the rest of the album as well.
