For My Sunday Song #70, I am going with a lesser known band called Thirdstory. The song is called “G Train”. It is off their debut E.P called ‘Searching’ which I did a review back in 2016. The band consists of only three singer/songwriters – Elliott Skinner, Ben Lusher, and Richard Saunder. And let me tell you, these guys can sing.
I first came across them when they opened for Tori Kelly back in 2016 on her tour. The guys were so incredible and their harmonizing was second to none. Their performance made me go out and download their E.P. because there was one song in the show that stood out to me and is now one of my favorite songs.
“G Train” was written due to the band’s schedule in rehearsing. One of the members was was always taking the NY Subway back and forth. On the video, theFader.com states…
…the three members of the group trade stories about lovesickness as they ride the subway through New York City’s boroughs. The song is a perfect soundtrack for the type of deep contemplation that only happens on the train, when you have altogether too much time with your own thoughts.
