I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve stretched my head up high to watch an airplane gliding overhead as it left a long fluffy strand of condensed water in its wake. Perhaps it’s something you tend to do when you see a white streak across the sky, too. Instead of gawking up at an aeroplane’s contrail today, you’re going to want to lean with your ears into this pastoral indie folk ballad from Irish band All The Luck In The World. Contrails is a tender heartrender that explores the sad beauty of fleeting youth and ephemeral love. Growing old has never felt more bittersweet. The song escalates from its gentle strums into a post-rock styled cathartic crest. Contrails accompanied by an affecting music video directed by Thomas Vernay. Watch the video below. Find out about All The Luck In The World’s UK/Europe tour, as well as purchase/stream Contrails, here.
