Rich Aucoin – City I Love

rich aucoin

Running to work in (almost) sub-degrees makes me a little smug.  And overwhelmed with love for sunny winter London because of my soundtrack.

I was introduced to Rich Aucoin by the lovely Amanada at Band of the Day, while we introduced each-other over a pint three months ago in London. He’s become a pretty permanent fixture in my speakers.

City I Love comes from Aucoin’s second album Ephemeral which sounds to me like a kind of one-man Arcade Fire affair. Huge anthems with power to stir hearts of the dead, and lyrics which tackle topics of death – and life. There’s nothing quite like pounding the urban jungle with a song as inspiring as this spurring you on to beat your PB. Thanks Rich!

If City I Love spreads an uncontrollable smile over your face, stream the rest of the album over on Wondering Sounds.
