Track Of The Day #1010: Songs For Walter – Earwigging
Songs For Walter made his return this week with new track ‘Earwigging’. Musically it picks up where last year’s lovely self-titled debut album left off, all background haze and picked guitar. It comes in good time as the summer is just around the corner, the indie pop jangle the ideal soundtrack to lazy sun-dappled weekends.
Lyrically it’s a break from Songs For Walter’s usual fare about songwriter Laurie Hulme’s eponymous grandad Walter. This time he sings about being eavesdropped on, albeit in his idiosyncratic vocal style that coats the potentially more sinister lyrics in a welcoming folky lilt. Consider our appetite whetted for album number two.
