It’s National Day here in Hungary; I’m posting “Something Missing” as something of a counterweight, then, to the collective joy, togetherness and general air of celebration all around me. The track’s sad, lonely guitars and melancholy lyric are just right for when you want to capture that feeling of alienation and a sense that all is not quite well, without being quite sure where the problem is coming from. The song’s New York shot video, directed by Steven Lake, does a great job of adding to this mood.
We lost what we once had
But I know I’ll miss you.
We can’t hold on to what’s left
there’s just something missing
