Grateful for nature: Smaiblue brings simple beauty to music that is often forgotten on ‘Caught In September’

Taken off the flourishing 12 track album ‘That’s Enough Love Songs – See You Soon‘, this is a beautifully created and nature-inspired song to help those weary minds to walk away from the TV screens for a few moments. ‘Caught In September‘ from the sensationally honey-coated voice of Smaiblue might be your new meditation go-to track.

Her voice is so peacefully innocent and the story of being around the gorgeous purple flowers is lucidly imagined as we can shut off our work brains for a short while. This is about forgetting our worries and wondering about how they grow and when. The sweet nature of the song is such a welcome relief from the real world. Everything seems to be so serious and it feels that you are carrying a massive boulder on your back the entire time.

This is a throwback to the old school type of love and feel, the tenderness is so lovely and natural. The earthy start gets you into a peaceful trance right away and the lyrics are so meaningful. Being grateful for the small things is something most of us need to remember, as everything is so fast as we scroll throw hours of meaningless junk.

Smaiblue teaches us to not stagnate and remember that looking at nature is the key to being happy. ‘Caught In September‘ is the story of believing in each other when you feel lost or sad. The world can be simple and worthwhile if we just put down those pesky electronics for a short while and just look at that beauty around us every once in a while.

When you want something, you have to try and go get it, otherwise you will always live with that regretful feeling. No one wants that on their conscious.
