Track 2: The Gutter


Like ‘January Hare’, ‘The Gutter’ is driven by a piano lick repeated throughout the track, although this time the energy levels have been taken up a notch and there are accompanying vocals.  The lyrical content of the song is a reaction against advice very often found in books and online.  We are often told to love ourselves and be satisfied and appreciative of everything we have, regardless of the direness of situations we find ourselves in.  This song suggests that this attitude can be counter productive and stops us from making the best out of ourselves and reaching our true potential.  For the best listening experience, play this loud through a good set of headphones.
