I read somewhere recently that the average person goes through life having swallowed circa 42 winged objects. We’ve all had that experience of cycling in the sunshine when the peace is broken by a bluebottle down the throat. Not nice, but in the case of Galway’s the Depravations it seems they’ve swallowed an entirely different species, the fluttering Brian Wilson from what I can make out. ‘Summer Rain’ is delightfully twee and will probably be gone from our heads by the time the sun goes in but for the moment it is a lovely diversion. It opens the Depravations ‘Mosey’ EP which is available for free from their bandcamp. A perfect backdrop for lunch on the fly.
p.s. This really reminds me of the music to an 80’s music program that used to be on RTE called Poparama. KD
