Serene sunshine fills your senses as you listen to “For The Coast” by The Satellite Station— a downtempo indie folk song about moving forward and finding a place that feels like home.
There’s lots of water imagery at work in these lyrics, starting with the first line, which places the listener on the coast. The fluid melody and twinkling acoustic guitar conjures mental images of flowing, rushing water— be it waves of the ocean or the current of a bustling river; perfectly capturing the feeling of peace sitting by the water- the connection to everything around you. It’s inspiring, quiet, and soft. It’s all carried by a gentle piano; my favorite part being how you can tell how delicately the keys were played, with dancing fingers softly and carefully caressing the notes.
This song is quiet and calming enough to ignite a small spark in you to move on and go forward. It’s like a soft whisper of encouragement in your ear, perfect for when you need the motivation and confidence to bring your dreams to fruition.
