The new video from Afton Wolfe is beautifully animated, serving as a perfect accompaniment to his intriguing lyrics. Wolfe describes his approach to lyrics, which tend to be obscure but based on real, personal experiences, as: “…associative and abstract…I don’t necessarily like to know exactly what a songwriter is talking about. I like to think about what a song means to me. I want people to think about what my songs mean to them.” This song tells the story of a bed from three perspectives: a man waking up, a woman dying and an insomniac. The excellent songcraft is matched by Wolfe’s characterful voice, which brings Tom Waits to mind. check out the new EP, ‘Pertronius’ Last Meal’. Good stuff.
