Artist of the day- Polly Scattergood
The other day I was playing a song on my guitar and decided to change all of the minor notes and chords to major formations, the difference was quite astounding. I think Holly Throsby would dig this idea, Polly Scattergood on the other hand isn't bothered with that, she's as dark as everyone else wishes they were. Her music's beautifully intense without being pressing, the cloud is just there, circling.
"The journies she takes us on begin with hope before being dragged back by the darkness, like cat power said, the schizophrenia's weighing me down. You can never escape yourself, only change who you are."
Here's some lyrics from untitled 27-
Numb the music
