SONG PICK: Charm of Finches – Treading Water (Video)
Two days ago, Emily McNally asked “Can we be friends.” Today, Australian sister duo Charm of Finches is one step further in their new song about the friendship that could replace a relationship. With gentle guitars and beautiful harmonies, “Treading Water” is a trip down memory lane. While Mabel and Ivy Windred-Wornes certainly have something specific in mind, the song can awaken forgotten moments in anyone.
The band says about the song:
“This song captures the bittersweet reminiscing of a relationship that was mutually ended. Some of my favourite songs carry the essence of a place. I like how this song conveys the character of Melbourne’s inner west. The journey is across a city, but also across the somewhat trickier terrain of navigating the transition from lovers to friends.”
Do yourself a favor and watch the gorgeous video, directed by the sisters themselves on full-screen:
