I came across this song recently and really liked it. I’d never heard of Peter Yorn before, and I wasn’t a fan of ScarJo’s previous musical outing, but this was a pleasant surprise. Their voices blend nicely and this song is like a bittersweet slice of summer.
I listened to some more tracks from their Breakup album on Spotify and there are some very nice songs on there. Scarlett’s voice sounds quite processed on Relator, but sounds more natural in some of the other songs.
I like the video too, with its sepia cast and interesting focussing (e.g. I liked the bit when the camera focussed on his beard).
Aeolian Mode. Or just plain old Minor. All the “white keys” starting on A, and you’ve got a minor scale.
You have a dark sense of humor. You like to keep to yourself, finding social interaction rather difficult and draining, perhaps even boring. Sometimes you feel like life is a real drag, and question why you even bother. How depressing, dude. In truth, the thing that keeps you going is the vague notion and hope in a little thing called Love. You are a hopeless romantic. You often stare out the window and daydream, most likely about that special someone that you wish you were good enough for. Yes, love really does make the world go round, and it’s not all rainbows and sunny meadows. That’s not real love. Love is a brutal, gut-wrenching affair. You probably have some sort of creative talent, which is good. If you didn’t have an outlet for all your emotions you’d probably lose your mind.
I was hoping to be dorian mode for some reason, but this is quite fitting too.
Ely Kim is quite the dancehall king – check out this 9 minute video where he boogies to 100 fantastic tunes in a variety of interesting venues. I’m worn out just watching him, but I’d love to meet him on a dancefloor for the ultimate dance-off. Loving the variety of tops he’s wearing too.
