Some songs make me want to cry because I get overwhelmed by the beauty of the music.

‘Ten White Horses’, by Scotland’s Modern Studies, gets a 10 on the sob scale. Brilliant piano, haunting cello, glistening vocals, a lovely build-up…it’s got it all in its short duration. Rob St. John and Pete Harvey are in the band, so there are tears of joy, too.

Check out Modern Studies on the band’s Website. You can pre-order the new album here.

Cheers!
