Layla My Love
Unknown Mortal Orchestra gives us an indie film darling in audio form and It’s winning all the prizes in my heart.
“Layla” is the anthem for the lovely heart — the person you want to spend your life with, the person you want to travel with, run away with, and disappear with. The track is a heartstring composition of folky guitars, butterfly piano, and an ocean wave hum that gives you chills.
The track belongs in the heart of every new age film kid, in every end credit scene, and in every title sequence.
“Layla” is one the most hopeful sounds I’ve heard in a while.
