"Saudade (European Portuguese: [sɐwˈðaðɨ], Brazilian Portuguese: [sawˈdadi] or [sawˈdadʒi], Galician: [sawˈðaðe]; plural saudades) is a word inPortuguese and Galician that has no direct translation in English. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. “
One of my favorite albums this year was Forever Lesbians’ Sherry. It sounds like the soundtrack to a beautiful summer that I never had. And this makes me sad. But who doesn’t love the longing? Saudade is a heavy, beautiful emotion that Forever Lesbians’ music encapsulates. This is an EP to listen laying on your bed at 4am. In a good way.
