The Delgados — The City Consumes Us
There it sits, lurking in the middle of Universal Audio
. It starts with a sad piano. Twenty seconds later, a female voice starts to sing "faces familiar full of regret / I hated this place / And all who came from it"
. Escape from the city, trying to get away from the scum of Notting Hill, before realising you're just the same as them. The city-virus has infected you, and no matter how far you run, you will always hear the beckoning call of the traffic and look wistfully at the streetlamps spelling out words in languages yet to be discovered.
This is that song. A random walk through the city, coming to terms with your fate, and yes, even embracing it. You can disappear and reappear in amongst the back streets and the end of days, melting into the night with a smile on your face.
