February is very much the month of love, and so – given that I’m running out of time and energy to blog (or do anything else today), here’s a beautiful song from Ex:Re (it’s pronounced like the skeleton photo thing) from the 6 Music Live Room: Romance.
Yeah, sadly this is about how unromantic this particular encounter and relationship was. So maybe this isn’t the one you’re looking for for Valentine’s Day.
Quirky moments on this live version include the synth player starting by hiding under her keyboard, and – let’s face it – everything that the drummer does. Look out for his silent silhouetted screams as he fits and starts over the drum kit.
Great song. And I love the way that despite how simple it is, there’s real enjoyment and feeling from all of the performers.
