Australia Listening-Kagu-Human

Today is Friday! How awesome is that little, simple fact?

At the magic hour of 6:00pm, work is usually put on a back burner, projects are placed on pause, and life with family and friends can resume creating a happy moment in time.

Weekends are the BOMB!

Just to kick off the celebration, here is another Australian band that ‘gets’ this happy relaxed weekend vibe. Their music has the ability to help you exhale and ready for weekend fun, as well as bottling the chill sensation of a Sunday coffee sipping and newspaper reading joy. I call that totally listenable. Come transport yourself in another time zone and listen to this really great sound from Australia…Kagu.

Kagu-Human

“Our hands burn

to see if we can hold

the taste of sunshine

out to sea, no coming back

the waves within our arms

and the wind will write our names

born where you can name each star

you just gotta go, go, go, go, go

escape these stars

you just gotta go, go, go, go, go

you just gotta go, go, go, go, go

we can’t bear it

all the illusions

broken islands

we’re just flawed humans

our hands burn

to see if we can hold

the taste of sunshine

if I said I saw me in your eyes

Would you let it go, go, go, go, go

that your just shy

you just gotta go, go, go,go, go

you just gotta go, go, go,go, go

we can’t bear it

all the illusions

broken islands

we’re just flawed humans”

The kagu or cagou is a crested, long-legged, and bluish-grey bird found in the dense mountain forests of New Caledonia, an island just off the coast of Australia. I am not sure how or why that was chosen for the name, but I love it’s uniqueness and geographic specificity. Whatever the meaning, Kagu has placed some solid music on my radar.

Kagu is Sean Heathcliff. He was once involved in another band, Snakadaktal. Since its break up, he has been making his own music. He released an EP by the same name as this track,”Human”,  back in March.  This track’s sound hovers in the air around me softly and thoughtfully, with choice, interesting lyrics.

Weekend music perfection!
