Winter song time! Brrrrr...London's turned cold! After one of the mildest autumns in recent memory, nature is exercising her harshest punishment: freezing winds and ice rain. All the more reason to stay inside with a warm cup of tea and think about the songs that make us feel a little bit warmer in the wintertime.
"White Days" has to be one of my all-time favorite songs by The Juliana Theory, one of my all-time favorite bands (the devotion of an 16 year old never quite dies...). The fifth track from Love, it's the best example of how the band combined electronica style fast guitar riffs with classic song-writing.
I was always amazed how the band recreated the sounds almost perfectly live without any pre-recorded tracks or extra players. (My college roomate and I did manage to get pretty close to figuring out, to the endless unhappiness of our neighbors).
Anyways, it's a bit more melancholy than most of their tunes, which makes it perfect listening for a winter's day.
I couldn't find a good video of the song, so you get this weird fanvid instead:
