Before we get into this, I ask that you set aside the tweeness of naming a song “Elspeth” and the connection that will inevitably form in your mind between the guitars in this song and Noah and the Whale’s execrable “5 Years’ Time” (pedant’s note: fuck’s sake, they didn’t even add the apostrophe – I had to).
And then, as we continue, consider that I am writing this from the top deck of the 59 bus and it is dark, pissing it with rain, and the traffic is sluggish. Ugh.
Now, press play below.
Sunshine isn’t it ? A sweet tune, that lovely harmonising moment just before the chorus, and the cheerful clump and clatter of the drums. Journey improved. Out November 11th.
