“Certain songs can seem like home the very first time you hear them. The way that by the time you reach the second verse, you want to move in and live between their walls, you want to kiss them until they agree to marry you. I had that very day been gifted such a track – a song named Beauty, which appeared on the Shivers’ debut album Charades
