Hello dear readers and Love-Is-In-Da-Bloggers 🙂 . How are you doing today? I hope you are fine and that lovely music is playing in the background.
Ah, it’s day 1 of “Love Is In Da Blog 2020”, and I can’t wait to see what songs about “Love in Winter” we are going to uncover. If you are new to “Love Is In Da Blog” check out yesterday’s post to find out more.
As you might know, I am very keen on finding music from other countries than the US and the UK. That is why I started my “#MusicMonday ~ Travel the World” series. However, when I searched YouTube for a song about love and winter, they gave me AFI a band I had never heard of before. Well, they are from California, but I like their sound and the voice of singer Davey Havoc, so I roll with it.
AFI was founded in 1991 in Ukiah California, and the abbreviation now stands for “A Fire Inside”. However, previous versions meant “”Asking for It” and “Anthems for Insubordinates.” ” according to Wikipedia. As far as I can see, some of them had no idea how to play instruments when they started. Sure they learned it in the process though 🙂 .
They disbanded when attending different colleges but came back together later on. From what I gather, their music is classed from different forms of punk to alternative rock. I have no idea what’s the difference 🙂 . I simply like what they are doing and therefore, no more information. Just listen in on their 2006 song “Love like Winter”. Please follow the link underneath the video if it doesn’t play here on the blog. This link leads to it’s YouTube location.
