Homegrown group Meltybrains? are back in the fold with this new easy-listening yet wonderfully intricate track. The mesmerising vocals apparently help describe two events.
“Walking around the hills of the Deserted Village on Achill Island on a beautiful night in August, Micheál decided to strip naked and walk up the mountain. When he returned to his clothes to redress, he discovered his boxers were missing. With no one else around, this was a most unusual occurrence. After much searching and confusion, it was decided the boxers had simply vanished. The first half of Heartfelt Hummer is the story of the possibility of a ban-sheep taking the boxers.”
Part two is as follows: “In the early hours of a Sunday morning in Dublin, on North Great George’s Street, Donnacha was walking home with our dear friend Mark ‘Stabbo’ McGuinness. Mark decided to he couldn’t walk any further and needed to sleep. Donnacha took it upon himself to carry Mark on his back up North Great George’s Street, all the way home, all the while Mark hummed into Donnacha’s ear for the entire journey.”
