Dark Light

When Becky and The Birds sing. We listen. Spin the latest single “Paris” from her upcoming EP ‘Trasslig” which is Swedish for entangled, messy, intricate and be amazed at the therapeutical power of the track.

Thea Gustafsson created Becky And The Birds as an alter-ego to embody songs about strong, independent, sensitive and romantic women – and The forthcoming EP ‘Trasslig’ packages those sentiments in a beautifully detailed assortment of songs. None more so than the song she just released today called “Paris” about anxiety and special relationships. Listen and follow the lyrics above in her quaint DIY video.

Becky And The Birds about the song “Paris”:

“I wrote this song in a hotel room in the centre of Paris. I was there to have a good time and to free my thoughts for a minute but couldn’t stop thinking about one special person back home. This song is about those feelings, when you’re trying hard to not think about someone or something, and you think that the distance between you will help that. But then you realise that distance does in fact make the heart grow fonder.”

“Paris” is the perfect long-winded ballad for a long stroll along the canals early in the morning. When no-one is around to interfere. A time when, alone, you can actually think to yourself and reminisce “Situationships” as the talented Snoh Aalegra once put it so eloquently. Becky and The Birds falsettoed pitch brings you to the edge of that cliff without ever letting you down. It’s quite something to behold. Watch/listen/pre-save the EP, you won’t regret it 😉 !

A to Z : Joining Emirates Cabin Crew

Many have asked how to join the company as Cabin Crew, many questions. I'll try my best to answer them in ONE post. I'll try to give a detailed chronology of how you could get a job working for Emirates, but that is only based on my experience so far. There's probably other ways to join but I'll go for the most common one, the one that applies to any wannabees out there. I'll also try to design some sort of chart to be even clearer.

Flores goes deep, spiritual and personal with new track ‘Wings’

Such a soft, in-control voice, doesn't go unnoticed these days. Even with the number of submissions we listen to every single day. Mexican-American background slash Los Angeles-born but now Norway resident artist Flores got us within a few seconds of her new single "Wings" playing through our headphones.
