Sailor & I | "Tough Love" [Stream]
There really isn't a ton of information about Sailor & I online. Here's what we do know: he (or they?) are Swedish and released an EP entitled John Franklin back in 2010 that's no longer for sale. The beautifully haunting "Tough Love" you hear today was originally called "Where's the Love?" and had a totally different arrangement (if you look hard enough, you can find it if you really want to hear it. Trust us though, it's not even a fraction as good).
"Tough Love" encapsulates everything about a struggling relationship. The heartfelt lyrics and the sweeping strings set against a backdrop of drums conjure up the image of a man trying to fight to save something he doesn't want to lose.
