Mmmm, I love Neil Finn's writing, especially his contemplative songs.
He's often said that his 'rockers' are just slow sad songs sped up.
The underlying melancholy of his music is what makes it so compelling to me.
Soon comes a new album 'Dizzy Heights' and I'm excited.
So excited that I go looking for previews and find this video of a track from the album.
The song is 'Divebomber' and it has me perplexed.
I'm not exactly underwhelmed, just a little confused.
Now, I can find melody in Mahler so, trust me, I'm up for anything but... much as I'm into the resonance of nostalgia, I've sat through this a few times and cannot get beyond the confusion of the 'found sounds'.
Is it just me?
Is there a song in there somewhere?
I hope so; it'll probably knock me sideways on the next play but I can only hold my breath for so long...
