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’.”
