Nobody: What Is The Light
It's Sunday. You stand before a church... one you've never seen before. Aww... what the hell... it's been years since you've really seen a church, if ya know what I mean? And you do, doncha? You push through the massive oak doors to be quickly wrapped in heavenly synths, churchly organ swirls, and a heavy bottom line. This is a church?, you wonder. A temple? A restrained vocal lazily falls out of the mix, asking questions that lead you deeply into the song, a song that has a familiar appeal. You begin to rock back and forth to the slow groove and it comes to you, it's a decelerated 'Do They Know It's Christmas Time?' by BandAid. And just when it hits you they turn it all into a muted The Polyphonic Spree, but not for long, just long enough for you to spin like a dervish through those big oak doors in the summer light... asking the question... who was that? And knowing the answer... Nobody.
