Song 62: Delay Trees – Perfect Heartache
Artist: Delay Trees
Song: Perfect Heartache
After revisiting the old collaboration between Swim Good Now and Torquil Campbell mentioned in my last post this autoplay feature on SoundCloud played this song next. It’s a pretty song which I think is quite accurately described with the hashtag listed on the SoundCloud page – #dreampop.I’ll certainly look into to more of their music. As the 1 year anniversary of my friend Ken passing away quickly approaches (something I intend to write about in more length at a later time) the lyrics “It’s an old friend I’ve been missing” resonate with me quite a bit. Like my friend dear Ken this song has a simple beauty to it. I really like the song and since love and heartache was something we’d talked about so much when he was around it seems fitting that he came to mind when I first heard it.
365 New Tunes is a project inspired by a tweet from the band Stars on December 31st, 2017 encouraging people to listen to a new song every day of the next year.
