Dinas Powys: Track by Track. ‘Empathy 101’

Every sound on this track – with the exception of the shakey egg part – is an acoustic guitar. The drums, the arpeggios, the pad sounds…. It was an attempt to recreate a ‘Tree of Knowledge’ style track using only those sounds. So it is reminiscent of my biggest ‘hit’, and intentionally so.

Lyrically it’s about how empathy, whilst natural, needs to be nurtured – and that empathy almost inevitably disappears from people who try and become more significant than they naturally would be.

It is, to my knowledge, the first ‘cubist folk’ song ever to lyrically reference the sneezing panda youtube video.
