Down By The Water
by PJ Harvey
(191 plays) | (0 fans)

Harvey was hesitant to reveal the meaning behind the song, saying it was "a song I didn't want to put a label on too much, like this isn't a song about some woman drowning her baby. To be quite honest, I don't really know what it is for me, myself, yet - which I don't mind because I'd much rather leave it for other people to do what they want with anyway."

The surreal music video, featuring stop-motion animation by co-directors Matthew James-Wilson and Ginette Lapalme, reflects the feeling of being overwhelmed. It features a rabbit figurine lounging on the beach, covering its face, intercut with illustrated clips of West singing and kaleidoscopic close-ups of water. See the video HERE.

Lala Lala are playing Neumos on November 12th!

Pictures Of You
by The Cure
(141 plays) | (2 fans)

Robert Smith has given conflicting accounts of what events inspired this song, but explained the emotions behind the lyrics in a 1989 interview with Music Box TV: "It's about the idea you hold someone. It goes back a bit to a song like 'How Beautiful You Are.' The idea of you hold someone isn't really what that person is like. Sometimes you completely lose touch with what a person has turned into. You just want to hold onto what they were."
