Top Tracks: Avec – Youth

I think we all have a part of us that is drawn to music that incites introspection. Like how our bodies need sleep to rest and heal to keep going, so too do our minds need some care and attention. The latest single ‘Youth’ from Austrian artist Avec, taken from her debut album What If We Never Forget, is the perfect soundtrack for your own journey inward. With her affecting and unique vocals, and haunting folk soundscape, this song just seems to clear the fog from your thoughts to reveal a vast unspoiled wilderness holding a whole new world of possibilities. When you feel spent and empty, this is just the kind of song you need to offer perspective, understanding and a breath of fresh air. Add this to your playlist, give the album a few spins, do whatever you need to do to let it work it’s magic on you.
