Track Of The Week #6
Cocteau Twins - Cherry-coloured Funk
A gem has been discovered. From the belly of central Scotland, my own backyard, this Grangemouth band has been under my radar for far too long. This track is beautiful. Coated in a nostalgic, dreamy ambience, it sucks you in. The curious and bizarre lyrics serenade you. And then the chorus. The melodies… my god. They hit you with a strength. The replay value on this one is strong.
I was aware of the Punk and Goth imprints on this era of Scotland’s music, but it’s super cool to finally explore it.
