As summer simmers on, a hot weather cracker from the new album by the Australian singer-songwriter and co-founder of the Go-Betweens, about his native Brisbane, but one that also hints heavily at global warming. With a scorching guitar solo and perfect pop composition, It is taken from his 2019 solo album of the same name, also featuring Scott Bromiley on guitar, bass, and backing vocals, Earl Harvin on keyboards, Michael Muhlhaus on drums, and Karin Bäumler on violin and backing vocals. It may currently be winter in Brisbane, the rest of the world is certainly hotting up.
The jungle is coming up to the door
The birds that are calling are hard to ignore
The heat of the morning has come too soon
And the rain that is falling is falling far away
Far away up on the moon
Oh that moon
No one is sleeping we're naked in bed
Tossing and turning with murder in our heads
Can't lift a finger dreaming of ice
The photo you sent me out the window or the snow
Well it looks like paradise
Oh that ice
Do you remember winter at all?
You in a frock coat and me in a shawl
Mowed the lawn Monday the grass a disgrace
Mowed the lawn Tuesday the grass in our face
The jungle is coming and so is the drought
The people are screaming
Let me let me let me let me let me let me out!!
Oh that ice … looks like paradise.
