Delafaye “Dog Day” – Mister ain’t the dogs a-barkin’?

This (fairly) new song from Delafaye makes for a slightly late-arriving perfect accompaniment to a hung-over New Year’s Eve – either cast your mind back a few days or cast your mind forward a few days, Friday’s not so far away and there’s another opportunity to recreate that feeling approaching.

The Louisville singer-songwriter has returned to his folk-Americana roots for a song that lies deep in melancholy.  It’s drawn from life, as Delafaye explains: “I knew that my relationship was coming to an end, and I felt defeated. That’s where the song came from for the most part. There was no bad blood between us, but it just wasn’t working for some reason, so I channelled it in to ‘Dog Day’.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
