If all goes right. I’m in Hakuba, snowboarding right now.
This week I’ve done a review in the form of the first step of my music video treatment process. This one in particular felt like a series of videos for the whole album, telling a story.
The song above wasn’t released with the album, so it’s not a part of my write up, as I’m not sure where it goes and I’m not confident enough of Cate’s intent to jam it in just anywhere. Plus, I think it was left out for a reason, but it’s still a great tune. So listen to it and make sure to pick up a copy of the record.
The album is a Sunday afternoon.
I Can’t Help You is the wake up. Her SO is sleeping in, but she decides to get a head start on her day.
Are You With Me Now is when she returns and he is up, but groggy.
Duke is the distance. Maybe this is about multiple Sundays. Now she’s alone and is trying to cope with solo Sundays.
No God is about some kind of haunting and sadness.
I Wish I Knew is her talking to her best friend about the regrets.
Wild is a battle with herself.
Sisters is getting stuff done. In her head it’s all more exciting than it is in real life. Probably because she misses her SO.
Mirror Me is something more personal, in front of a mirror? Trying on clothes to make her seem like a different person?
Cuckoo Through The Walls is insanity. Is she losing it? Losing herself? Who is she? Was she complete with her SO? Can she be complete now?
Mug Museum finally the title. It feels like an odd retrospective on the whole album. Looking back on Sundays. What good will it do?
