In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Langhorne Slim reveals that his track "Changes" is about, "the beauty and terror of having breakthroughs and transformations in life, only to discover that there are infinite amounts of both. The pursuit of the groove must be groovy."
I listen to this track and it's subtle, but I hear a familiar internal monologue I've had time and time again with myself in the midst of changes and transitions, the commas and semi-colons in my life.
The song isn't about how to best deal with change because I don't think there's ever one right answer. We all experience this, along with our breakthroughs and transformations in vastly different ways. Sometimes they happen slowly, maybe even naturally like metamorphosis; other times they occur to us suddenly and all at once, like getting caught in a tropical rain storm.
There's never any specification of what kind of change is being discussed in this song, which of course, I appreciate because it becomes all the more universal. Also worth mentioning is this sense of confidently moving forward, even with all the uncertainty that lies in the horizon.

About The Curator - Jordan Yutan
Jordan finds joy in simple things like brunch, naps on the grass, and long car rides with the music on high. Her version of fun consists of dance parties, movie marathons and – of course – karaoke. Music has been such a key part in shaping her spirituality. She believes the first time she felt God reaching out to her was through a song and that still happens time and time again. She sees music as a vessel to vulnerability and will gladly invite anyone to listen, but especially wants to hear the songs in their own hearts. She dreams of visiting cafés all across the world, and meeting all kinds of people over a cup of coffee. But for now, she’s making the most out of college, soaking up the sun in her beautiful campus of UC Santa Barbara.
