Tom again dropping in
As winter draws in and term and deadlines begin to set in everything feels mediocre, and life is a little too much like autopilot. Sometimes it’s good to immerse yourself in some music and just escape.
Team Me’s new track of their forthcoming record ‘To The Treetops’ mixes jubilant vocal lines and syncopated drum rhythms that only Scandinavian bands seem to be able to do. Maybe it’s something in the water up there.
The lyrics are full of the longing for life to not be pointless: “mediocre friend, pretend yr happy for me”, yet the backing music commands you to ignore all those worries, and sit and embrace their choral melodies and piano twinkles.
“I hope I mean something, I hope we mean something, I hope we mean something for you my love.”
