Space pop Diva

The Tug Of Love Zingstone

If you feel like spinning away.

Now that's a truly nice line that leaps out in a Major Tom to Ground Control sort of way. It inspires me to listen further.

The intro is just synth glamour but I like it, it's not too anything, and the moodful chords that progress from it are kind to my ears shifting into heartstringpullingminormajorchangesgalore.

I suppose this is pop, not alternative, in the eyes of the artist because it is so harmonically palatable, tried and true and hard to argue with and yet it is rare to get a combination of words and music that really endures, perhaps exceeds so many other songs in its complex simplicity.

But there really are hints of space travel- I know you're out there in the blue. Just small hints and then you are back on earth- a simple rule- to love? to lie? I have to guess....

So for lyrics they sing brightly, not conveying a huge story just a couple of moments, a couple scenes. And the piano scales are so dramatic and appropriate for their parts!

I think I generally prefer experimental over pop, but I must proudly admit I like this song. Perhaps, dare I say, it has a strain of experimental in it.
