On paper this combination of people (an ex Razorlight drummer on vocals and guitar) should not work; but it does. This song is just right for a year’s end; singable, maudlin and just the right side of mawkish.
I love the way that the video, with it’s nods to community and friendship augments the song. It reminds me of some of the highpoints of my year: ‘discovering’ London- on my own, with my son and with friends (the latter experience may not be repeated: both have experienced redundancy since our visit).
Happy new year’s eve!
