Top Tracks: The Bergamot – Young Again

You never appreciate what you have until it is gone. When you’re young there’s nothing you long for more than being older. To have new doors open to you, to travel far and wide and see everything there is to see, to have the chance to achieve great things and make the world a better place. When we get there however, the first thing we wish for is to turn back the clock to a simpler time. It’s not that all those things aren’t possible, it’s just that our spirit gets slowly eroded along the way, and optimism falls away in the face of a harsh reality. We stop seeing the world through the same youthful lens of wonder and ambition. While ‘Young Again’, the new single from husband and wife duo The Bergamot, mourns the loss of that youthful mindset as we enter a bleaker world than anticipated, it also serves as a hopeful warning. A message that if a few of us can just cling on to those ideas of youth, the hope, the determination, the love and optimism, then maybe we can build a world that’s less inclined to break us down. Make an adulthood worth growing up for.
