Giants by Now, Now

Haven’t been blogging in a while! Hello, everyone. For this entry, I’d like to share with you guys a personal favorite song of mine.

Now, Now (formerly called Now, Now Every Children) is an indie rock band based in Minneapolis.
L to R: Jess Abbott, Cacie Dalager, and Bradley Hale
Giants by Now, Now is one of my favorite songs out of their EP (wish it was longer!) entitled ‘Neighbors’ (2010). As much as I love the song Giants—the beat, the music, the vocals, the vibe...I just don't get the lyrics. I tried to contemplate about the lyrics, and I cannot come up with a conclusion. Is it about religion? Love? Rebellion? I can't tell. 

All I know that this song is my jam. By the time you hear the first three seconds of the song, you'll find yourself automatically transported in your own little world. 



Giants by Now, Now


Lyrics  

If I believed in God I would not have done the things you’ve done
Because you were only half willing to follow the son

You take our homes but your framework doesn’t hold
Against the feet of us giants
You’ve been alone and you’re singing to the sun
‘Cause you know you’re on your own and you’re going home

Like an animal burying its bones
But leaving fingerprints on the walls inside my home
But if we’re so different then why did we start this?

You take our homes but your framework doesn’t hold
Against the feet of us giants
You’ve been alone and you’re singing to the sun
Cause you know you’re on your own and you’re going home

You can hide it if you want to but everybody knows it’s true
Buried everything you knew but they won’t keep a thing from you




I hope you enjoyed the song! I advise you to listen to the rest of Neighbors EP and their other EPs and albums. Feel free to comment below your thoughts about the music and your own interpretation of the lyrics. :)

Oh, and a Happy Halloween! Enjoy the gained calories and the toothaches!
