Calgary song writer Reuben Bullock, is working on a new record, and this song – “a memory’s lament” – showcases his growth as a songwriter and a new direction with his full band.
The contrast of this video, one full of carefree images of youth (the Dennis the Menace slingshot, cut off jean shorts, and Summers at the cabin) and song’s actual meaning the striking. Reuben and his band sing of the type of goodbyes that leave you with nothing else do to but hold your head in your hands and hope the storm relents.
Oh, and it has a chorus and harmonies that sweetens the breeze like jasmine or campfires. Music lovers, you’ve just been given notice.
