song: "Awards" - Porlolo

Whatever you've been daydreaming of, whatever adventure you hope to seek, "Awards" from Porlolo will inspire you to get there. The title track from the band's upcoming EP is one of those joyous moments that takes you on a journey through the unexpected. Although it starts with worn and slow folk, meandering strings and honeyed vocals setting the stage, the track soon picks up in speed, engulfing you in stringing swings and introspective instrumental moments. At one point the song questions: "If I lay real still/will you trace my form?" And that line is so reflective of the mood of the track; "Awards" is soft and sweet, eager to reveal all its secrets and ask you all its questions. All you have to do is press play and then enjoy the ride.
