This post – when I photographed Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros for this interview in Glide Magazine– captured the moments of my holy shit I’m falling deep for this crew of madly talented, sincerely humble, grossly charismatic band. This was before “home” had visited just about every living soul’s pandora station, ipod, music festival and whistling tunes and tonations. My heart felt a bit betrayed after my lil’ set of eyes and ears experienced their jammin Janglin’on a Ford car commercial. I got over it. Instead, I choose to applaud them all. Alexander and crew have found a positive niche, one that resonates to the point of tangible delight. I’m a lyrical kinda soul; put “mmmm hmmm” (head shake of acknowledgment) words along with a solid beat and I’ll be a forever fan.
Truth is it.
“Every little lie in this world come from dividing
Say you’re my lover, say you’re my homie,
Tilt my chin back slit my throat take a bath in my blood get to know me
All out of my secrets
All my enemies are turning into my teachers.
Because, lights blinding, no way dividing what’s yours or mine when everything’s shining
You darkness is shining my darkness is shining
Have faith in ourselves
Yes I’m only loving, only trying to only love
That’s what I’m trying to do is only loving
Yes I’m only lonely loving feeling only loving
Till I’m feeling only loving
Ya say it ain’t loving ain’t loving my loving
But I’m only loving only loving only loving
Only loving the truth.“
