Sunday Sounds : Elbow

In a rare break from downpours on day two of the wettest Glastonbury festival on record, we were lucky enough to see Elbow play live, just as the sun went down.

To their cult following, Elbow are known for gorgeous instrumentals and lyrics that weave visual poetry from unexpected inspiration. This song is from one of my favourite ever albums, ‘Seldom Seen Kid’, a subtle, slowburner which uncurls a little more with each listen. Nostalgic, minimal and often balladic, it is best enjoyed from start to finish, although I can’t help but hit repeat on One Day Like This.

'Throw those curtains wide, one day like this a year will see me right.'
