I got up early today and did everything right. I drank loads of water, made myself a healthy vegetable smoothie, and even went for a run. Despite all of this, I crashed at around four pm into a world of lethargy and constant yawning. It seems as though physical remedies have failed me this time, but luckily, I found the answer in the form of a song. The track in question was Thinkin On A Mem by Daphne Tunes.
The song and music video are hugely entertaining, revelling in silly behaviour and good vibes. If I had to use one word to describe the sound that Daphne Tunes put out, I’d use the term warm. Throwing out the cold and cynical indie we often encounter, the band are more than happy to spend their time pumping out catchy and uplifting melodies while remaining as fresh as any of their peers. There are several layers to the video, in which we witness the characters go through a spiritual journey disguised as a daytime TV quiz show.
When all is said and done, what we have with Thinkin On A Mem is an expertly crafted piece of music that will put a smile on just about anyone’s face, and if it fails to lift the corner of your mouth, then perhaps you are a robot.
