We have had all manner of sounds, styles and subject matter from Alias Wayne over the years, if you can predict one thing bout him and his music, it is that it is unpredictable. He’s back this time with a lilting, folk number, one that grooves in a cool, bluesy sort of way, spacious enough to let swirling Hammond organs float through and tinkling tambourines shimmer around, solid enough to offer great melodies and groovesome riffs.

But, as is often the case with such songs, it is the lyrics that grab you first and here he offers up a funny and flirty tribute to his significant other. What’s so great about the lyrics here is that they come from a heartfelt and honest place without being schmaltzy or trying too hard. The result is something that feels natural, lacking in any of the fumbling awkwardness that is often inherent in love songs.

Gorgeously effortless and effortlessly gorgeous, that’s the Alias Wayne signature style.
