I've never liked a band more in which I understood the songs so little. Time to put the earphones on! The Shins have not been to Australia for five-and-a-half years. It is easily one of the best songs that I have ever heard. Incredible Performance Red Rocks - Morrison Such a beautifully orchestrated show. The girl uses the ideas of religion and love to provide a false sense of comfort, but she is merely hiding behind that idea that someone else will save her from herself. I've had a hundred different jobs, and there is a special kind of sickness doing a job in an office. It's a big jump for an artist with literally a single to their name and nothing more, but watching Angie in the flesh sheds a little light on what exactly the fuss is all about.
Or changed by a potion and find a handsome young mate for you to love? The Shins continue to amaze me. I felt sorry for her. General CommentDefinitely agree that this is the most catchy of the tunes off the new album. I was a bookkeeper and a secretary, and there is something so horribly boring and defeating about it. General CommentI think that in this song the speaker is someone who is single and is trying to talk a girl who is tied down into freeing herself.
And he realizes he shouldn't have but its too late and he's lonely. General CommentIm a New Zealander, and hate this song without even hearing it! The woman should be taking steps to save herself rather than vainly hoping for a magic transformation. Such a supremely weird band that fills my heart with a warm squishy feeling. The past seven days has seen bands and artists including Editors, , , , and Tilly And The Wall drop in to the New South Wales state capital. It's true, this is a beautiful song and it's by an amazing band. We come in doing cartwheels We all crawl out by ourselves And your shape on the dance floor Will have me thinking such filth I'll gouge my eyes You'll be damned to be one of us girl Faced with the dodo's conundrum I felt like I could just fly But nothing happened every time I tried Wooo, ooooh! The woman will never truly be happy unless she takes the steps to give meaning to her existence.
Hope it's right when you die, old and bony. And our dreams, goals, allow us to be distracted in the present, through school or work or even family and religion at times cuz we know that what we are working for is that glimmer at the end, that light that will make all of our efforts seem relevant and worthwhile. After and receiving some attention on Triple J Unearthed as a featured artist, the newcomer is wrapping 2017 in front of easily her biggest audience to date in the illustrious surrounds of the Enmore Theatre 9 December as support for The Shins. The last paragraph is the character Mercer? God speed all the bakers at dawn may they all cut their thumbs, And bleed into their buns 'til they melt away. Mercer stresses that if she follows this path she will not experience any transformation in her life. This description gets my vote and is the way I understand the song for the most part, but like any great song and this is definitely one of them it can stand in for many life situations.
A charming, understated performer, Angie sings slowly and soulfully; think Ainslie Wills or Mia Dyson by ways of Jess Locke or Julia Jacklin. The song concludes with the speaker and the woman jumping out of the metaphorical window of self inflicted limitations. Will you be pulled from the ocean, But just a minute too late, Or changed by a potion, And find a handsome young mate For you to love. Do not miss the opportunity to see these pioneers of indie rock perform live! The Shins Australian Tour 2012 Monday 23 July — Festival Hall, Melbourne Wednesday 25 July — Hordern Pavillion, Sydney. I think if I heard the song clip in that movie, I would probably have forgotten it.
Most of them were performing at the festival, which took place last weekend August 4-5. After being announced for mega-fest Splendour In The Grass, the band have booked their fifth set of Australian dates, bringing with them brilliant locals Husky. Anyway, love the band, enjoyed the show. It's smooth sailing from therein, with the sextet working their way through both classics 'Mine's Not A High Horse', a re-worked 'Gone For Good' and a few highlights of 'Heartworms' 'Name For You', 'Cherry Hearts'. They played a lot of old stuff and I couldn't help but dance my ass off.
Without a trust or flaming fields am I too dumb to refine? With one last wig-out saved for closer 'Sleeping Lessons', the guitars go into overdrive and the dancefloor takes off. Whatever the band throws at the audience, we're there every step of the way. Even though he's trying to convince her to join the ranks of the free though, he's doesn't seem so sure himself if his way of life is better; he may be the one kidding himself and might really feel like he's of a dying breed as he gets older and all the other people around him start settling down. Without a trust of flaming fields am I too dumb to refine? I was happier then with no mind-set And if you'd 'a took to me like A gull takes to the wind. Best band in America right now!!! The speaker urges the girl to makes changes in her life before it becomes too late. General CommentWow, after reading what some other people have thought, especially G-Farb, I have a much different take than I did before.
It's been a big year for Melbourne singer-songwriter Angie McMahon. Born to gaze into night skies? We hate playing second best to neighbours - if youre Canadian, you know what I mean. Larger rooms and further captive audiences await Ms. James Mercer uses the song, Australia, to convey the idea that without dreams or ambition the woman is living, but not truly alive. We all want to put off responsibility, and just have fun. It's a love song pretty much, saying how this guy fell in love with a girl and after she left he never met another girl like her and thus lived the rest of his life thinking about her wishing they could have stayed together. Furthermore, the opening chords of 'Caring Is Creepy', which opens the band's 2002 debut 'Oh Inverted World', would not sound more beautiful or resonant in any other room in the city.
