This dark folksy voice belongs to none other than the Ryan Gosling. While being nominated for various acting awards, Gosling has also dabbled in the music industry with his Los Angeles band, Dead Man’s Bones. The band has only released the one self-titled album in 2009, with “Pa Pa Power” being my personal favorite song, but for fans of Real Estate, Discovery, and STRFKR, I encourage you to continue listening past Track 6. Unexpectedly, the entire album has a sound that gets you dancing in your dorm.
The song is smooth with a dark eerie sound as the children’s choir sings, “We will not destroy you” in conjunction with Gosling’s voice. Their sweet little voices are present throughout the entire album, creating the perfect juxtaposition to the band’s smoky guitar riffs and booming drums.
What is your favorite song when the weather turns?
