Ah, it’s Valentine’s Day. Romance is in the air. Our suggestion? If you’re not doing anything tonight, nip down to your nearest restaurant, look through the window and shout “amateurs” very loudly at all the couples sat in rows at tables. Because we all know that as far as relationships go Feb 14th is for novices, right?
It’s once you get into the nitty gritty of being an item that you really find out if you’re made for each other or not.
We’re not at that really getting to know you stage yet musically with Pawws. That takes at least an album. In fact today is only our second date after having first introduced Lucy Taylor last October. So we have no idea how things are going to pan out yet, but for now it’s going well, particularly with new demo Outside. This is a track that pulses and throbs as if it has been transported in time from 1980’s synth Britannia days, harnessing a calmly cool version of Madonna singing over the top.
So we’re a little bit in love with Pawws (or maybe as it’s the second date we should call it the chemical rush of musical infatuation) but we’re fully aware it could all go wrong. That’s sometimes how pop music works.
And sometimes it’s how relationships work as well. Most of those couples in that restaurant will probably be thinking that everything is glowing and perfect, but the reality is that candle lit dinners are just superficial. When it comes to the day to day workings of love, sometimes things don’t pan out. Just listen to the lyrics of this song. “You only see what you want to see.” “You said you will never let me down. “ “I guess it just didn’t work out.” Happy Valentine’s Day from Breaking More Waves.
If music be the food of love, play on.
