Remember when everyone was obsessed with Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’? Well, while we think it’s a gorgeous song too, there was another song on his 2008 album For Emma, Forever Ago that we love even more. ‘The Wolves (Act I and II)’ still showcases Justin Vernon’s haunting vocals, but in a less-poppy, more meandering way. The song is sad without being melancholy, and is perfect for listening to on those warm summer nights when nothing seems better than to just lie in bed with the lights off and the windows open.
