I remember seeing Leon Bridges on the cover of The Great Discontent magazine a few years ago but never really got around to listening to his songs. There have been so many tragedies lately and I feel lucky to have chanced upon this beautiful song today.

Into The Blue

“Thirteen year old Julija returns to the island on which she was born desperate to reconnect with her best friend, Ana. But Ana is in love with a boy and Julija is no longer a priority.

The Astronauts Company
