So you’ve officially been warned by me. This week’s track has such a simple melody and a really catchy tune it is stupid easy to get it stuck in your head. Spirits is a song that, in such a playful way, makes light of all our internal struggles (or our “guns and spirits” so to speak).
In this song, I equate “guns” with the idea of something overwhelming you so much you feel like your head is about to explode. It can also represent dangerous thoughts, riskiness and reckless things. The spirits in our head, in a similar fashion, represent whatever it is that’s haunting you and keeping you up at night through fear, anxiousness, or any kind of powerful energy.
In our own ways, we’re all trying our very best to make the most out of our lives while we’re here. And sometimes, when life isn’t panning out how we want it to, it’s so easy for us to get caught up in our head sometimes. I love this song for normalizing those feelings. It’s seriously so catchy that I’d even argue it’s promoting us to be more honest with whatever’s bothering us just by singing along.

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.
