The Song - Camera Obscura's "Swimming Pool"

my head's been lying dormant like a sleepy little mouse

A typically beautiful and understated track from  Camera Obscura's mighty debut LP Biggest Bluest Hi Fi originally released back in 2001.

It's  the Tracyanne Campbell written "Swimming Pool".

Aurally delicate and delightful, as is the hallmark of producer Stuart Murdoch's best work with his own little Belle & Sebastian.project!

Such sumptuous vocals from Campbell over the most delicious of melodies.

However, it's a dark tale told here actually. The neurotic thoughts a depressive/ slacker ("all my days inactive will be justified, awaken from a slumber to a rollercoaster ride") entangled in an obsessive love ("you must never ever try to go and lead a separate life.")

I sense a wonderful happy ending to this story!
