Cards on the table here…this is actually one of the best songs I’ve reviewed this year for Swept…Hell, it’s one of the best songs I’ve reviewed for Swept, period! ’Wish I Was‘ is an amazing single by Colin & Caroline. This couple has got a wonderfully heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, uplifting and simply beautiful sound that certainly makes you want to come back for more and more; to listen to their music on repeat. As I type this I’ve already listened to this single several times.
There is a simplicity to their music that really allows for the beauty of their wonderful vocals to shine through any cloudy day. Simple composition and simple story make way for a simply incredible product in ‘Wish I Was‘. The quality of both Colin and Caroline’s voices compliment each other in an almost unsuspecting way but it is just right for the song all the same.
I do have to go straight on to my one gripe with this song though. It is entirely too short. At just over three minutes, there is not enough of this song to fully satisfy me. That being said, the song is actually structured just right and I wouldn’t want any part of it to change. I would just love to hear more and more of this terrific tune. And check out this music video for the single. Amazing production quality to match the amazing tune. You can really witness how these two musical lovers feel their art form.
That being said, I’m going to go back to playing this on repeat while I wait for Colin & Caroline’s upcoming EP release this summer which takes the name of this soon-to-be hit single, ‘Wish I Was‘.
So, if you’re looking for a great tune full of reminiscent romance in a fantastically folky way, definitely check out Coline & Caroline’s ‘Wish I Was‘ right HERE. And if you want to learn more about this creative couple, check out their website HERE.
