bright grey

This is probably my song of the year. I can’t stop listening to it.

I love it. I love how it sounds like all my favourite Dunedin songs (anything by the Verlaines, maybe) rolled up together, cycling around and around in minor chords until… suddenly… there’s a full chorus.

Chords change, the sun comes out, it’s bright grey, but even so, all is well with the world, and the girls and I dance around the lounge singing “ooo-ooo” like a small troupe of blond monkeys.

And then we play it again.
