I’ve had a crap couple of days recently. Extreme boredom and a lack of motivation has led me to watch endless YouTube videos, staying up late and drinking too much coffee. Today, that’s all changed. I’ve woken up fresh, and I feel excited about the future. This cyclical situation isn’t unfamiliar, and I imagine most of you reading this can relate, but there is a point to my long-winded intro. I’ve found the perfect soundtrack for this kind of day, and that’s Dungaree Day, the brand new single by Paul Molloy.
This song oozes happiness. Musically, it’s impressive, with a sound that’s tied up neatly and presented in a near-perfect package. With obvious similarities to some of the best bands from the ’60s, the essence still manages to be modern and unique. Full of subtle intricacies, I had to add this one to my playlist immediately to accompany my frequent walks to the shop. The harmonies are one of the best things about Dungaree Day, combining effortlessly to create a vocal style that’s as smooth as silk. The video for this tune is exceptionally cool too, and one of the best I’ve seen in quite some time. Taken from his upcoming album, The Fifth Dandelion, I can’t wait to see what wild and wacky offerings are contained within the full thing.
Growing up in Liverpool, some of the bands I enjoyed listening to were The Zutons and The Coral. I sit here at the age of twenty-five as a fan of so many various acts Paul has been involved in, and for that, I have to thank him. Now I have one more project to add to that list, and I’m pretty made up about it. Today is a good day! Today is a Dungaree Day.
