TwinsTown and friends at the glen gates, Dunfermline.

Once upon a time I was fine

I knew exactly what I wanted to do

Stop, won’t you pause and rewind

Cos lately, lately, lately I haven’t got a clue

Say goodbye to the summer…

TwinsTown

The superb 40 second intro, quite long for TwinsTown, is followed by a well structured, tuneful and fairly conventional indie pop song.

There’s no more sunsets in your eyes

There’s no more drinking ’til the early sunrise

No more Monday morning long lies

You’re out of holidays and alibis!

TwinsTown

The deceptive complexity of Say Goodbye to the Summer is revealed in the chorus as it points to a deeper meaning.

Say goodbye to the summer

Say goodbye to the sun

Say goodbye to the summer

Say goodbye to everyone

TwinsTown

The last line of the last chorus, “Say goodbye to everyone,” makes me wonder; is this a simple goodbye to the summer, or is this someone on their last knockings, the summer being a metaphor for life.

I suppose I’ll never know. It’s not as if I can just phone these superstars up and ask. They’re busy preparing for their appearance at the EH6 festival on Saturday 27th November.
