“Broken Horse” by Freelance Whales

This song, although not well known, perfectly captures the transition from fall to winter. The line “We could make a blanket of coasts and breath our souls into the neighbor’s front lawn,” should remind you to cuddle up by a warm fire away from the cold winter air.

After a rocky semester, we all can take some time to be thankful for the small things. 

“Homesick” by Catfish and The Bottlemen 

The first song from their album “Kathleen and the Other Three,” “Homesick” has an alternative rock vibe to it. This song will get you excited to go back home. The uplifting beat can get you and your family dancing while eating all your favorite foods.
