That Song Changed My Life: The Wombats

August 4, 2016

I like music, you like music and of course, your favorite bands like music.

"What song changed your life?"

I was asked this question a while ago and it has stuck with me ever since. Music is such an amazing thing from how it can turn smiles in to tears or take you from your car to half-way across the world with just a few notes, that I became fascinated with finding out what other people's life-changing songs were.

This week, I hit up Summer Camp artist the Wombats to see what their life-changing tune was. 

"Needle in the Hay" by Elliot Smith

"A friend played this song for me when I was in my first year of university and it kind of knocked me sideways. I found the brutal honesty of the song and the almost lackadaisical approach to production extremely inspiring. Needless to say, I soon became obsessed with all of his albums. When a song is sincere, I really do think it stands head and shoulders above the rest and forms an undeniable connection with the listener."

EXCELLENT choice, and pretty great description right?
