just like jazz

I haven’t always been a jazz fan. I don’t know if I am now. All that I listen to is some bands who can perform live and light up the stage; and I had only started listening seriously to these genre 2 months ago.
So what is it about these bands and their music that I love?
Perhaps we should start with honesty. That time I wanted to move on, moved away from a bad past and move out the bad memories from my head. So I needed a fresh start. I needed a new perspective. I needed new music.
And now after enjoying them for some time, I get it. It’s a new experience everytime I play the song. They’re catchy, but they’re not boring. They have serious arrangements, and they have honest lyrics. And by honest I mean not all tears and heartbreaks. By honest I mean that if things hurt then they’re hurtful, but it’s okay and it will be better.
I love how these bands (and this type of music) makes me feel. They make me flow easily through life. They make me travel light without too much baggage. They make me enjoy myself. They give me a fresh perspective on life: that life, as complicated as it can be, is beautiful and enjoyable. Just like jazz.
