Put The Sun Back

It’s always sad when a relationship ends, unless it involves a minor reality TV star and the singer of a comedy ska band, but if you are embroiled in the emotional scab-picking that precedes The Big Split, you can at least console yourself with the knowledge that the pain and suffering you are undergoing fuels great pop. ‘Put The Sun Back’ sees James Skelly choked up and agonised, as he realises that he is losing his loved one: bummer for him, ace for the rest of us, as he weeps out a truly beautiful, Kinks-esque pastoral lament. Sad and lovely, like a butterfly passed out pissed in a ditch.
