Video: Nada Surf “Song for Congress”

We leave you on this first (short) week back dear reader with a track I forgot to include in my top 10 of 2019 last month, my bad, and given it’s not available on streaming services it’ll get lost in the sands of time, or at least my ailing memory, if it’s not immortalised here on AUK. New York/Cambridge (our Cambridge) based Matt Caws’ beautiful elegy for a potentially lost country has questions for us right now too but ends with a note of optimism: “Do we dare look away? Shut our eyes as we slide into the dark? Now’s the time to do something.” Have a good one.
