SOTD: This Too Shall Pass – Maria Mena

Song: This Too Shall Pass
Artist: Maria Mena
Album: This Too Shall Pass – Single
Genre: Pop
In short: “This Too Shall Pass” is the lead single off Maria Mena’s highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Viktoria. Written by Mena, the number is her own letter of apology to the people she has hurt unintentionally or intentionally. “The winds of your ego / The waves of My tears / Made The most perfect almighty storm that we’ve seen this year / But experience gathered / We’ve learned from our past / So don’t worry darling / This too shall pass,” sings Mena on the confessional number.

LOVELIFEUKULELEWho? Sophie Madeleine. Genre? Folk/Acoustic. About: Sophie hails from Brighton, and bright she is, her debut album LOVE.LIFE.UKULELE was released not so long ago, and it shows so much promise. Its strength is its simplicity and straight-forwardness.  I have picked 3 songs from the album to highlight, first of all, You’re My Favorite, which is the first song I heard and was the one that got me “hooked”, it’s a simple song with nothing but a tender voice, acoustic guitar, an accordion, and lush lyrics. I Just Can’t Stop Myself (From Writing Love Songs About You), if the title didn’t intrigue you, I don’t know what will. One Kiss Too Many is the one of the bet moments on the album, her voice’s tenderness will you have surrendered and all ears. Download the three songs below, like them, love them, buy the album, love it.
