Bernie Simpson: Into the Sea

A quick post: Llama Farmers were - still are - one of my all-time favourite bands. Their songs, with their sweetly surreal lyrics and crunchily grungy guitars, swoop emotionally and deeply and still, as they say, get me every time. I often listen to "Big Wheels", or, in particular, "Get the Keys and Go", if melancholy is in the air.

But the band were young, and as young bands go, they went. So I was very glad to find out (through the magic of Tumblr) that Bernie Simpson (the lead singer) has written a new song called Into the Sea. The video is embedded below. It's a lovely, lilting elegy for a lost love. Listen! Love!
