A version of this song first appeared on Gum’s 2003 album, ‘Low-flying Kites’, but it has now been lovingly restored and renovated by a team of experts and is presented in glorious acousti-colour with a key change, a new middle 8 and everything. It’s an 'end-of-the-affair' type song. The narrator is feeling a bit devastated but is trying to face up to an uncertain future, swinging in mood between pessimism, optimism and realism.
The track features some nice work from Ross Morgan on drums and
Fraser Sneddon on bass. It sounds a bit like Travis on prozac, so it might appeal
to those who enjoy a bit of melancholy.
Another kind of Happiness
