The week after Ella and I recorded “Daylight” by 5 Seconds Of Summer we saw them in concert. Excitement swirled in my stomach and clogged my mind as it was all I could ever think about. When the whole pavilion went dark there were 0.5 seconds of complete silence, and then the crowd erupted into cheers so loud I thought I would go deaf (which was a horrific thought because I wouldn’t be able to hear the concert). Halfway through they played Wrapped Around Your Finger, which is my favorite, and there’s an amazing guitar solo in it that is so good live that whenever I hear it now I feel like I’m there all over again. There’s a certain feeling when you go to a concert, that the people around you are family, that the people on stage are gods and your soul purpose is to revel in the art they created to keep you alive. It’s such a beautiful feeling and when the concert ends that feeling follows you into the next morning when you wake up and remember the night before. This experience was magical so a huge thanks to Ella for taking me! I hope you enjoy this cover as much as I enjoyed the concert!
