This song is my newest obsession. Very original song construction.

What do you hear in the song construction that is unusual?

Love the song though. And the recording setup. You can hear people in the background throughout, and in the end it's clear that the festival has resumed.

Lovely performance. Nicely simple. I love the recorded tonality and balance of the bass. Those look like neat mics...

Not being formally trained in music I wouldn't know the proper words to use. First of all the song is carried by a very neat bass line on a standup bass. The fact that the only other instrument is a mandolin is in itself very unusual. The vocal is understated sung almost in a monotone but then the chorus comes busting out with such a great harmony. Love the mandolin riff the song starts with. Just everything about it seems fresh and new to me although I am sure there is nothing truly new in the world of music as there are only so many notes, rhythms and harmonies to use.
