Jack Colwell – Captains Melody

We love Jack Colwell here at Something You Said. The dear chap, did, after all, welcome us to his recent gig by leaving us a hand-drawn picture of a unicorn at the door. And, as well as possessing art skills, his music’s pretty awesome too. Check out the excellent new song, above.

“The track is a breakup song juxtaposed against a joyful tune (a technique originally used by The Beatles) where the protagonist tries to use four different melodies to win his lover back,” Jack says.

“The video deals with the idea that initial relationship grief builds into madness or ecstasy. Losing your emotional control, leaving you to reshape, remould and reinvent yourself; either taking parts of yourself with you, or leaving them behind. The hardest part is learning to break up with yourself.”
