The Leisure Society: The Sober Scent of Paper

von: Manafonistas Filed under: Blog | TB | 2 Comments

„The Sober Scent of Paper“ is a hair-raising, elegiac waltz informed somewhat unconsciously by the demise of Sylvia Plath: „When I began writing“, says Nick, „I didn’t know what it was going to be about. For some reason, the first line Chains dredge the great lake around you / Pull you along by the knots in your hair made me think of her.
I guess it´s quite a dark desolate image“. Yet there´s light to this shade, with Tearing The Arches Down marrying a wryly observed narrative The boy with the bloodshot eyes / A legend in your lunchtime to an ebullient chant.

    Ach, ein unendlich fein gearbeiteter Song, der all das enthält, was ich an The Leisure Society mag. Im Gegensatz zu den langweiligen Mumford & Sons, die so viel ruhmreicher sind.
