The thing I like most about this song is the arrangement and instrumentation. Virgin of the Birds‘ Jon Rooney has an uncanny sense of balance that shines through in this reflective addition to Ball of Wax 48. His approach is simple and elegant. An occasional tambourine that lifts you off and then disappears to float you through the next part of the song, where the vocals cut out and a wavy tremolo and melodic piano do the singing. I’m not sure what Jon is singing about but it sounds like he’s got a knack for the French language. I imagine him in a thought bubble singing this barefoot, dressed in white up in the clouds with an all white piano and a white polar bear rug underneath his feet.
