This bittersweet song with a very catchy melody has been running through my head for the last couple of weeks. I love it for the same reasons I love Belle and Sebastian, even though you couldn’t mistake one for the other.
TMBG are still good at writing about everyday things that nobody else writes about. I have often woken up with a strong feeling — disquiet, or happiness, or yearning — from a dream that I can’t recall. And this song nails it. And because it also has a typically tricky melody that I still haven’t got the hang of, I find that it’s stuck whirring around in my brain. I can’t remember the dream, but I can’t forget this song.
