The expected sound came through the headphones, a shock is an understatement as the expectation was not was provided. Listening to this artist reminded Longe of listening to "Cold Play". The mixture of R&B, Soul, Pop, Soft Rock is simply impressive. Athns is raw talent and any label would be lucky to have him as apart of their roster. The way beat start made the hair on my arms stick up and that does not happen often. The lyric of the song is very meaningful, you can feel that this song means something and it's coming from a place of experience. The part where he sings "I don't run back in the place" it's like he when through something and he tells himself he does not want to be there every again. He has learned from an experience that made major changes within his heart. This song should be charted. Listen below to the song "The long way home by Athns".
